NHTSA announced that it investigated after the company recalled more than 1,300 motorcycles for a defect that could reduce steering capability, and the company filed a late response to a NHTSA Special Order.
The agreement followed a July 2 public hearing where NHTSA officials outlined problems with Fiat Chrysler's execution of 23 vehicle safety recalls covering more than 11 million defective vehicles.
At 1,978,680 pounds, the Aspen Foods recall is even larger than Barber Foods' recall announced a few days earlier.
FSIS was notified of a cluster of Salmonella Enteritidis illnesses on June 24 and, working with the Minnesota Departments of Health and Agriculture, Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, determined there is a link between the frozen, raw, stuffed chicken products from Barber Foods and the cluster.
This recall involves 11 different vehicle makes and roughly 34 million vehicles, according to NHTSA.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will coordinate a remedy program.
