Kawasaki, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has recalled approximately 3,900 Mule utility vehicles due to a fire hazard.

According to the recall notice, the fuel tube can scrape against the air cleaner housing and develop holes, posing a fire hazard. Kawasaki has not received any reports of incidents or injuries.

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. The following models are being recalled: Mule 600, Mule 610 4×4 and Mule 610 4×4 XC.

Manufactured in the United States, affected models were sold at Kawasaki dealers nationwide from June 2011 to February 2012 for between $6,700 and $8,200.

Consumers should immediately stop using these vehicles and contact their Kawasaki dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair.
