Curt Manufacturing recalled 13,474 Forged Ball and Pintle Hitches due to potential safety risk.
The pivot hole is out of position, which can limit the locking jaw engagement.
Limited locking engagement may allow the upper jaw to unlatch and a towed vehicle to separate, increasing the risk of a crash.
Curt Manufacturing will notify owners, while dealers will replace the ball and pintle hitch, free of charge.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
