In cooperation with the CPSC Kubota has announced the recall of approximately 970 RTV500 utility vehicles due to a carbon monoxide issue. The RTV500 with a cab enclosure can experience an accumulation of carbon monoxide while idling and not moving which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. The vehicles were sold from September 2008 to April 2012. The company has received two reports of headaches related to carbon monoxide.
