It's apparently a bad day to be an mobile outdoors enthusiast.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued three recalls today that are bound to make the more sporty among us take note.
Arctic Cat is voluntarily recalling about 19,000 snowmobiles. The lower steering tie-rod attachment can loosen and cause loss of steering control, posing a crash hazard. (Full Details)
Specialized Bicycle is voluntarily recalling about 460 2012 Bicycles with Advanced Group carbon forks. The brake component housed within the bicycle's carbon fork can disengage from the fork and allow the brake assembly to contact the wheel spokes while rotating, posing a fall hazard. (Full Details)
Columbia ParCar is recalling about 1,400 golf, service and utility vehicles. The lower steering yoke can loosen where it attaches to the steering rack and pinion, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash. (Full Details)
None of the recalled products has caused injury, but all manufacturers have received reports of the defect from consumers.
