Polaris recalls snowmobiles due to fire hazard

In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Polaris Industries has voluntarily recalled about 28,000 snowmobiles, the CPSC said in a report Nov. 6.

The recall involves a variety of model-year 2004-2007 Polaris snowmobiles. For specific models involved, see the commission’s Web site, www.cpsc.gov.

The fuel tank filler neck can crack and separate, allowing fuel or fuel vapors to leak from the fuel tank. This poses a fire hazard to consumers.

Although the CPSC has received 1,048 reports of the filler neck cracking or leaking, no injuries related to the recall have been reported.

The affected snowmobiles were manufactured in the United States and sold in Polaris dealerships nationwide from July 2003-October 2007 for between $4,100 and $11,600.
