Consumers should stop using  recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. (To access  color photos of the following recalled products, see CPSC’s Web site at  [url]www.cpsc.gov[/url].)[/i] 

        

            [b]Name of Product:[/b] Polaris All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) 

          [b]Units:[/b] About 95,000 (45,000 units recalled in June 2005) 

          [b]Manufacturer:[/b] Polaris Industries Inc., of Medina, Minn. 

          [b]Hazard:[/b] The ATVs can have defective Electronic Control Modules (ECM) that overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to riders. 

          [b]Incidents/Injuries:[/b] Since the original recall announced in June 2005, Polaris has received  372 additional reports of smoking and/or melted ECMs on the affected  ATVs, and 20 reports of fires, nine of which involved property damage  beyond the ATV. No injuries have been reported. 

          [b]Description:[/b] This recall involves select 2005 through 2006 model Polaris Sportsman  and Scrambler 500 ATVs. The model and serial numbers are printed on a  decal attached to the front side of the radiator (Sportsman) or the top  of the front cab cover (Scrambler 500). Serial numbers are permanently  stamped into the left frame rail behind the left front wheel. The  recalled models are listed on the chart below. </span>

          The  U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the  public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more  than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.  Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents  cost the nation more than $700 billion annually. The CPSC is committed  to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire,  electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. The CPSC’s work to ensure  the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools,  cigarette lighters, and household chemicals – contributed significantly  to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated  with consumer products over the past 30 years. 

          

          To report a  dangerous product or a product-related injury, call CPSC’s hotline at  (800) 638-2772 or CPSC’s teletypewriter at (800) 638-8270 or visit  CPSC’s Web site at [url="http://www.cpsc.gov/talk.html"]www.cpsc.gov/talk.html[/url].
