Gainesville, GA — Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled Kubota riding mowers for fire hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on September 14, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that the fuel hose clamp can detach from the fuel filter, allowing gas to leak out. This poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“The Kubota Riding Mowers are bright orange, have 48-inch, 54-inch, or 60-inch wide mower decks and have ‘KUBOTA’ stamped on either the sides of the front engine cover, or on the right side behind the driver’s seat. The serial number is located on the left front frame for T series models and the right front frame for GR and ZG series models. This recall involves Kubota Riding Mowers with the following model numbers and serial number ranges,” reported the CPSC.
