General Motors and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have announced the recall of nearly 2,000 vans due to a safety flaw.

The recall covers a total of 1,798 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured between June 2, 2011 and October 17, 2011, citing the failure of the second stage of the dual-stage airbag deployment in the event of a severe frontal impact.

Because the airbags do not comply with the occupant crash protection code, the airbags will need to be replaced in the suspect vehicles.

The recall will begin later this month and owners will be contacted by GM.
