The High Point Enterprise reported ( that the recall involves clamps on engines supplied for the buses by Cummins Inc.

Parent company Daimler Trucks North America said Monday it initiated a safety recall campaign and has reported to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

Daimler says a bolt included in the clamp assembly may break when it's subjected to stress.
