SMALL Business Minister Michael McCormack has issued a safety warning notice for owners and repairers of Polaris youth quad bikes which may contain asbestos – including raising the alarm for farmers.
Mr McCormack said he was acting on advice from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and advised consumers to check their youth quad bikes.
“My most important job as minister responsible for consumer affairs is to protect Australian consumers’ safety, which is why I am issuing this notice,” he said.
“As a country MP, I know how important quad bikes can be for work on the farm and how many young people ride youth bikes too, so I wanted to ensure as many consumers as possible are made aware of the recall.”
