Reasons the product is recalled

The thread pitch of the screws does not fully match the thread pitch of the bearing. Therefore, the wheel bearing may not be properly secured to the vehicle.

The hazards to consumers

In the case of a high impact shock on the wheel, for example in an accident, the wheel could partly or fully detach from the body of the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury to the vehicle occupant or bystanders.
