Company Recalling 270,000 Lawn TractorsMar 4, 2003 | AP
A Tennessee company is recalling about 270,000 riding lawn tractors because the fuel tank can crack and leak fuel, posing a burn and fire hazard.
Murray Inc., of Brentwood, has received 101 reports of fuel tanks leaking, but no injuries have been reported, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The recalled lawn tractors were sold under the Murray and Stanley brand names and have 38-, 40-, 42-, 46- and 52-inch cutting decks. Retail and hardware stores, including Wal-Mart and Home Depot, sold the lawn tractors nationwide from November 2000 to January 2003 for between $800 and $1,500.
