Kawasaki Motors Corp. said Thursday it is recalling about 47,000 all-terrain vehicles in the United States following reports of 12 injuries.

The recall follows a statement by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission that 12 people riding in the vehicles were hurt when pieces from broken drive belts entered the vehicles’ transmissions and caused them to stop suddenly.

The recall applies to four models of the Prairie ATV sold between September 1996 and last month.

Kawasaki Motors is a U.S. subsidiary of Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd.
