Possible Rust on Mower?!?

I have only had my Power + mower for a little over a month and have used it 5 times.  I noticed when I was brushing out the undercarriage that the bar between the rear wheels seemed to have a rust starting on it.  I do not mow the lawn wet and I have not hosed the mower off.  I am wondering if this is happening just from the grass wetness from being cut and if anyone else has had an issue.

Janet, can you post a picture here of what you are seeing?  That will help us try to figure out what might be going on.

All, our team took a look at these images and that kind of surface corrosion (really more discoloring than anything) should not affect performance and durability in any way.  We are, however, having the team review some kind of solution going forward.  A reminder that your tools are covered by a 5 year warranty and if performance is affected in a negative way, we're only a phone call away to get help.
