==> No manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the stock CVT Air Intake can become completely obstructed with snow causing the Drive Belt to overheat and break, posing a fire hazard to people who utilize the Vehicles in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use. BRP has received three reports of incidents involving fires. No injuries have been reported.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Recreational Vehicle, please do not use them. Instead, kindly stop using track kits on the recalled vehicles in snow conditions and contact a Can-Am dealer for a free repair. BRP is reportedly contacting all known purchasers directly.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly burns, smoke inhalation and/or respiratory collapse.
