Husqvarna is recalling a series of riding lawn tractors sold this year after getting more than 50 complaints of damaged fuel lines, something that could cause a fire, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The CPSC said the fuel line to the rear-mounted fuel tank is too long and can get damaged by moving parts when the tractor is in use. Those who have the lawn tractors are urged to stop using them until a free repair can be arranged by Husqvarna.
