EGL Motor of El Monte, Calif., is recalling about 500 EGL and ACE-branded youth all-terrain vehicles.
The ATVs fail to comply with the requirements of the federal mandatory safety standard.
The B125 ATVs exceed the maximum speed limitations for vehicles intended for children aged 10 and older.
For the Madix 110, the parking brakes do not prevent the movement of the vehicle. In addition, the handlebars on both ATVs pose a laceration hazard if the rider’s body or head impacts the handlebars at a high rate of speed, such as in a crash.
ATVs that fail to meet the mandatory safety requirements pose a risk of serious injury or death. No incidents or injuries are reported.
The recall involves EGL and ACE-branded Youth ATVs, models MADIX 110 and B125. The vehicles were sold in various colors, including orange, red, blue, pink, and green. They were marketed for children aged 10 and older.
The name of the vehicle is printed on a label located on both sides of the vehicle. The model number is stamped into a metal plate located on the left side of the ATV, under the rear body.
The phrase “This ATV is subject to EGL MOTOR INC’s action plan approved by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission” is printed on a label located under the model number plate.
The ATVs, manufactured in China, were sold at AWL Distribution, BV Powersports, and other authorized dealerships nationwide from May 2020, through September 2020, for between $550 and $670.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact EGL Motor to make an appointment for a free repair from an authorized repair shop. Reflectors, headlights, and a chest protector will be installed on the ATVs. EGL will also repair the parking brake, speed capability, and spark arrestor.
Consumers may contact EGL Motor toll-free at (866) 496-9919 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (CT) Monday through Friday, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online for more information.
