U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Announces Two Recalls

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued two recalls.

First, BRP is recalling Can-Am Side-By-Side Vehicles due to a fire hazard.

Debris such as leaves, hay, and grass in wet terrain areas can collect in the vehicle's exhaust pipe area quickly.  When they dry and the exhaust pipe becomes hot, it poses a risk of fire. 

About 18 fire incidents have been reported.

The Second recall is from Columbia Sportswear.

They are asking customers to stop using seven styles of their heated jackets, as they pose a burn hazard.

For more information on both of these recalls, check out the links we have provided on the left.
