Polaris recalls up to 35,000 ATVs because of asbestos bans

MINNEAPOLIS — Polaris Industries is recalling up to 35,000 all-terrain vehicles in Australia, Europe and New Zealand because they may have violated bans on asbestos use in those countries.

Polaris announced the recall in Australia of a dozen different ATV models sold since Dec. 31, 2003 on Monday. The details of recalls in New Zealand and Europe are still being finalized.

A supplier inadvertently provided parts with asbestos to the company.
