THIEF RIVER FALLS (AP) — Arctic Cat Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 16,500 snowmobiles because of a possible loss of control.

Arctic Cat and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Wednesday.

The recalled snowmobiles are 2010 model Arctic Cats manufactured at the company’s Thief River Falls plant.

Consumers should immediately stop using those snowmobiles and contact their local Arctic Cat dealer for a free repair.

The company says the front lower suspension arm can crack during use, which could lead to loss of control.

Arctic Cat has received 13 reports of suspension arms cracking. No injuries or accidents have been reported.

The recall involves all 2010 Arctic Cat Z1, TZ1, F, Bearcat, M, and CF model snowmobiles. All variations of color and model features of the listed models are included in the recall.
