Hustler fastrak super duty fuel leak

I purchased this mower yesterday. It had 4 hours on the meter. I filled the fuel tanks yesterday afternoon. There were no leaks overnight. This morning I started the mower and ran it for maybe five minutes. I come home three hours later to a puddle of gas in my garage. Fuel is leaking out the exhaust. Any ideas what cause this?

I know there is a recall for a fuel tank vent valve, but I don't know if the dealer completed the recall repair or if this is even the cause of the leak. Thanks.
