Kawasaki is recalling about 28,000 of its Mule Pro side-by-side recreational off-highway vehicles due to risk of injury to riders.

The front floor cover can be punctured by a foreign object, posing an injury hazard.

The recall involves 2015, 2016, and 2017 model year side-by-side recreational off-highway vehicles. The recalled models include four-wheel side-by-side seating for three to six people and automotive-style controls. The vehicles come in various colors. The model name is printed on the right and left front fender. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is located on the steel frame between the right front lower A-arm mounts.

The vehicles were sold at Kawasaki dealers nationwide from July 2014 through June 2016 for between $12,000 and $16,900.

See the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release for specific models affected.

Kawasaki has received two reports of debris coming up from the floor cover, including one report of debris striking an operator's leg.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact their local authorized Kawasaki dealer to schedule a free repair.
