CPSC Terminates ATV Action Plan for SunL Group Youth ATVs

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced the termination of the All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Action Plan for SunL Group, Inc., of Irving, Texas. As of March 30, 2011, importers and distributors cannot import or distribute any ATV subject to the SunL Group ATV Action Plan. The company was an importer and distributor of gas and electric scooters, dirt bikes, ATVs and go-karts.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced the termination of the All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Action Plan for SunL Group, Inc., of Irving, Tex. As of March 30, 2011, importers and distributors cannot import or distribute any ATV subject to the SunL Group ATV Action Plan. The company was an importer and distributor of gas and electric scooters, dirt bikes, ATVs and go-karts.

CPSC stated in a release that since the SunL Group is out of business, the company can no longer provide a remedy as part of its 2008 recall of SunL Group SLA90 Youth ATVs. SunL Group obtained approval for its ATV Action Plan on August 7, 2009.
 
An ATV Action Plan is an agreement between CPSC and an ATV manufacturer, importer or distributor that describes actions that a company must carry out to promote ATV safety, including rider training and dissemination of safety information. An Action Plan also includes age recommendations and policies governing marketing, the sale of ATVs, and the monitoring of such sales. It is unlawful for an ATV manufacturer or distributor to import into or distribute in commerce any new assembled or unassembled ATV, unless the ATV is subject to a Commission-approved ATV Action Plan.

CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the SunL Group SL A90 Youth ATV. This youth ATV lacks front brakes, a manual fuel shut-off, padding to cover the sharp edges on the handlebar assembly, and is sold without a tire pressure gauge or adequate flag pole bracket.
 
The risk with these ATVs is severe because these vehicles are intended for children. In many cases, youth riders are just learning how to operate an ATV and may not have the experience necessary to help them avoid hazards associated with this product’s defects. The defects could lead to young drivers losing control of the ATVs, which poses the risk of serious injuries or death.

CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. For more information, visit https://www.SaferProducts.gov.
