It's not very often that a John Deere product is recalled, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission says some John Deere Compact Utility Tractors are unsafe.

The government agency says spring locking pins in the rollover protective system, or ROPS can break and cause the ROPs to fail in the event of a rollover. The CSPC says that puts the driver at serious risk of injury or death. The Moline-based company has received three reports of broken spring locking pins and it found another two in the manufacturing assembly process. There have been no reports of injuries.

The recall affects about 7,000 John Deer 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 series compact tractors made between February and July of 2013. The tractors are green and yellow with a foldable black, metal rollover protection bar extending above the operator's head.

To see if you have a tractor under recall, look for the model number on the hood and the registration number can be found on the right hand side of the frame above the front axle. You can then compare the numbers to the list on the CPSC website. Deere is also contacting all registered owners.

If you have any questions, you can contact Deere and Company at (800) 537-8233.
