Moline, IL — Deere & Company, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of 5,200 D100 lawn tractors for possible brake failure that can result in injuries. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on September 14, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the hardware used to hold the brake assembly to the transmission housing can break, which can cause the brakes to fail and the operator to lose control. This poses an injury hazard to consumers.

The CPSC reported that the recalled lawn tractors are green with yellow seats and mower decks. Model D100 tractors are included in this recall. The model number is located on both sides of the tractor’s hood. Tractors with the serial numbers below are included in this recall. Serial numbers are located under the right rear fender.

• 1GXD100A…BB051247 thru 1GXD100A…BB053312

• 1GXD100E…BB114388 thru 1GXD100E…BB139599
