Snowmobiles Recalled for Fire Hazard

Arctic Cat Inc. of Thief River Falls, Minn., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a voluntary product safety recall for about 1,300 snowmobiles because fuel can leak from the fuel pump at the fuel tank mounting screws, posing a fire hazard. CPSC says consumers should stop using the vehicles immediately and contact their local Arctic Cat snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair.

The recall involves all Model Year 2010 Arctic Cat 500 Sno Pro models. The model name and number are displayed on the side of the seat and on the engine cowling. The vehicles were sold at the company's dealerships nationwide from October 2009 to February 2010 for between $7,800 and $8,200.

According to CPSC, the company has received two reports of fuel leakage at the fuel pump mounting screws, but no injuries have been reported. Arctic Cat has directly notified registered owners about this recall by mail. For more information, call the company at (800) 279-6851 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site at www.arctic-cat.com.

CPSC said it is interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Reports can be made at https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx.
