The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of BRP Ski-Doo Snowmobiles due to a fire hazard.

About 37 BRP Ski-Doo Snowmobiles were imported from Finland by BRP US Inc. and sold at Ski-Doo dealerships nationwide from March 2009 through April 2010 for between $8,000 and $9,000.

Friction between the fuel hose and the electronic control unit can cause the fuel hose to wear and leak fuel, posing a fire hazard. BRP has received six reports of fuel leaks, three of which resulted in vehicle fires. One of the incidents involved a rider suffering superficial burns.

This recall involves the Ski-Doo snowmobiles model year 2010 Expedition TUV 1200 and model year 2010 Expedition TUV SE 1200.

Consumers are advised to stop using these snowmobiles immediately and contact their local Ski-Doo snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners have been directly notified about this recall by mail.
