The Associated Press reported that Forest River, owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, was fined $5 million because it “mishandled safety concerns.”

Elkhart, Indiana-based Forest River could face up to $30 million in fines if any other safety violations are found over the next three years.

Forest River failed to report required data on time and also delayed the issuance of recalls when problems in 1,000 of its camper trailers were found.
