However, the number of accidents involving commercial vehicles has risen over 20 percent in the past decade. In an effort to determine common accident causes, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration collaborated on a study of 120,000 fatal truck collisions that occurred over a 33-month period.

The recall is for only one of the 14 pots the company makes.
