Error Unable to open env file: /etc/default/locale: No such file or directory

Some of my systems are logging this error:

su: pam_env(su:session): Unable to open env file: /etc/default/locale: No such file or directory

I already had the "locales" package installed, to create the file:

dpkg-reconfigure locales

Follow the prompts to choose your locale(s). Result:

cat /etc/default/locale
#  File generated by update-locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
