Polaris Industries Inc. of Medina, Minnesota, has recalled about 2,800 Scrambler all-terrain vehicles because the throttle release switch can fail, posing a crash hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.

The ATVs were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from April 2013 through June 2017 for about $13,300, the statement said. It said Polaris has received nine reports of the throttle release switch failing; two minor injuries were reported.

Consumers should stop using the recalled ATVs and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair, the statement said. The company can be reached at 800-765-2747 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fort Wayne time weekdays or online at www.polaris.com.
