Kubota Tractor Corp. on Thursday recalled about 48,875 of its RTV-X1100C model utility vehicles amid crash and injury hazards posed by defective floor mats, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The floor mats on the recalled Kubota utility vehicles can warp or degrade and interfere with the throttle pedal, posing crash and injury hazards.
Grapevine, Texas-based Kubota has received one report of a loss of control to date that resulted in black eyes and minor bruising, the recall notice stated.
The CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the recalled utility vehicles and contact an Authorized Kubota dealer.

If the floormat is warped or degraded, consumers will receive a new floormat installed by the dealer that will be secured by rivets to the floor, according to the CPSC.

The CPSC said if the utility vehicle’s floormat is not warped or degraded, the dealer will complete a modification to the existing floormat by trimming the mat and then securing it by rivets to the floor.
