MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Transport Canada, is issuing a voluntary recall on model year 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicles due to reports of pinched fuel tank vent lines. The recall is related to the vehicle’s fuel tank vent line potentially being incorrectly installed during manufacturing, causing it to become pinched, which may cause the fuel tank to pressurize and leak fuel, posing a potential fire hazard.
