Husqvarna Outdoor Products Inc., formerly known as Electrolux Outdoor Products Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 174,000 lawn tractors. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The fuel line on these lawn tractors can separate from the fuel tank outlet. If this occurs, fuel will spill out, posing a fire hazard. Husqvarna Outdoor Products Inc. received 886 reports of fuel lines that separated from the fuel tank outlet and 16 reports of fires related to this issue. There are three reports of minor personal injury.

The lawn tractors were sold under the Husqvarna, Craftsman, Poulan Pro, Poulan, Weed Eater, Southern States, and Murray brand names. Recalled tractors' product, model and serial numbers are listed in the chart below. To determine if a tractor is included in the recall, check the lawn tractors' product, model and serial numbers, located on a label under the seat of the tractor.

The lawn tractors were sold at home centers, retailers, hardware stores, and dealers nationwide from September 2005 through June 2006 for between U.S. $820 and $1,500.
