Club Car is recalling about 1,800 golf carts because of a safety issue that can put passengers at risk of falling out of the vehicle.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday that various sizes, models and colors of its 2012 Precedent 12 golf and transport vehicles are being recalled. The hip restraint on the passenger side of these vehicles can fracture, which puts passengers at risk for a fall.

The vehicles were sold at dealers nationwide in February of 2012 for between $5,000 and $8,000.

Club Car, based in Augusta, Ga., said it has received one report of an injury tied to the recall, in which a passenger fell and suffered bruised ribs.

Consumers should stop using the vehicle and contact Club Car for a free replacement of the restraint. The company is also contacting its customers directly.
