Toro Rider Mowers Recall
Toro Riding Mowers issued a voluntary recall of its Toro Z® Master Riding Mowers due to fire hazard. The hazard can be caused when the traction belt wears through the mower’s fuel tank, causing a rupture, and resulting in a fuel leak. This fuel leak poses a serious risk of fire hazard to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission along with Health Canada, have issued the recall in cooperation with the Toro Co., of Bloomington, Minnesota. Unless otherwise indicated by Toro, the U.S or Canadian Safety organizations, consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.
