FCA US is recalling 113,896 2014- to 2017-model year Ram ProMaster vans because the sun visor, dashboard label and owner's manual falsely state that the vehicles are equipped with frontal driver and passenger advanced air bags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“The incorrect information may change how close the occupants position themselves to the air bags, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.

The discrepancies are in violation of federal safety standards. Dealers will apply labels with the correct information about the air bags installed in the vans. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin June 9. Vehicle owners can reach FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) customer service at (800) 853-1403. FCA’s number for this recall is T24
