OTTAWA – Health Canada says a John Deere compact utility tractor is being recalled due to a safety hazard.
The agency, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, says the rollover protective bar at the back of the tractor can loosen and fail in a rollover accident, which could result in serious injury or death.
The recall involves model 1023E and 1025R, with the number printed on the hood of the American-made green and yellow tractors.
About 380 units of the tractors were sold in Canada and about 3,300 were sold in the United States.
Deere & Company says it has not received any reports or injuries in either country.
The recalled tractors were sold between March and October, and anyone who bought one should contact a John Deere dealer to have it repaired at no cost.
