The steering shaft can separate from the joint and result in a loss of control, posing crash and injury hazards.
This recall involves American Landmaster utility vehicles series EV, L3, L4, L5, L5W and L7, equipped with standard (non-power) steering, and manufactured between March 2021 and October 2021. They were sold in red, blue and camouflage colors. Landmaster and the model name appear on the frame near the front left wheel of the vehicles. The model year and date of manufacture can be found on a data plate behind the vehicle’s pedals.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled utility vehicles and contact American Landmaster to receive instructions for conducting an inspection to determine if your vehicle requires repair, or to make an appointment for a no-cost inspection and, if necessary, full repair from an authorized repair shop. American Landmaster is contacting all registered owners directly.
American Landmaster has received seven reports of the steering shaft separating. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
