CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) — Outdoor enthusiasts may be thinking of breaking out their snowmobiles soon, but first, they may want to check and see if theirs is subject to a recent recall.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Polaris Industries has recalled multiple models of snowmobiles due to a potential fire hazard.

Polaris Model Years 2021 through 2023 MATRYX, model years 2015 through 2022 AXYS, and certain 2013 and 2014 Pro-Ride snowmobiles are being recalled, which includes an estimated 138,000 sold in the United States between October 2011 and August 2022.

The CPSC said that electrostatic discharge inside the fuel tank can cause vapors to ignite during operation and the tank to burst, which poses a fire hazard. As of the recall’s posting on Nov. 17, at least 30 reports of fuel tank bursting, including 16 incidents of fire and one report of a second-degree burn were made.

If a customer needs to start the snowmobile in order to move it, they are advised by the CPSC to make sure the fuel tank is full, and if it is not, they need to fill the tank with fresh gasoline.
