Irvine, CA — Kawasaki Motors Corp. and the U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC) have recalled about 3,900 utility vehicles for fire hazards they pose to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on March 15, 2012.

The utility vehicles were recalled after discovering that the fuel tube can scrape against the air cleaner housing and develop holes, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.

“The vehicles are model year 2012 Kawasaki four-wheeled, off-highway utility vehicles with side-by-side seating for two people and automobile style controls. Each model has a bench seat, a rollover protection structure and a cargo bed. The vehicles are available in the colors green, red, black and camouflage,” reported the CPSC.

The following models are being recalled:
