On January 5, 2022, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that CRT Motor has recalled their youth all-terrain vehicles (ATV) due to a crash hazard, and violation of federal safety standards.
The recall includes CRT Motor’s youth ATVs models DF125AVA and DF125AVB. The vehicles are black, blue, green, green camouflage, pink camouflage, red, and yellow. The model number is located on the VIN plate at the lower section of the front of the frame. The CRT ATV was exclusively sold at Motorsports Planet stores nationwide from April 2021 through August 2021.
According to the CPSC, the ATVs do not meet the mandatory safety requirements allowing children to operate them above the maximum allowed speed, increasing the risk of crash and serious injury. Additionally, the handlebars pose a laceration hazard should the child’s body or head impact the handlebars at a high rate of speed.
Additionally, on January 6, 2022, the CPSC announced that Polaris recalled about 1,100 youth all-terrain vehicles due to fire hazards. This recall includes the Model Year 2022 Outlaw 110 EFI Youth ATVs. These products were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from September 2021 through November 2021. According to the CPSC, the unit may pose a fire hazard causing leaks from the inner layer of the fuel line.
