Chronology :

During routine maintenance testing by a third-party laboratory in December 27,2023, Harbor Freight was notified that the reflectors in the lights of the trailer light kits potentially did not meet the minimum requirements under FMVSS 108. Additional samples from varying production date codes in the trailer light kits as well as the submersible trailer lights, also made by the same manufacturer, were sent to third-party test laboratories in January 2024 for expedited follow-up testing. Harbor Freight stopped future orders and placed all incoming shipments on hold while it conducted an investigation into the manufacturer’s quality control processes simultaneously, and it was determined the manufacturer’s production machinery had deteriorated or was not properly and consistently cleaned and inspected during production, causing certain recent production units to exhibit the issue. On February 5, 2024, Harbor Freight received the final test results from the third-party test laboratories. On February 8, 2024, the Harbor Freight leadership team made the determination to proceed with a recall and 573 report and began the process leading up to the stop sale to prevent any further sales of the product and HFT cancelled the shipment of future orders from the manufacturer. HFT has not received any claims of injury relating to this non-compliance issue.
