Today, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for defective Dune Buggies manufactured by TJ Powers Sports, LLC of Irving, Texas. Consumers were warned to immediately stop using the product until further notice. The defect involves a seatbelt adjustment which may break during impact or stress and poses an injection injury and hazard to both drivers and passengers. Already, 1 consumer has suffered nerve damage to his right arm as a result of the defect.
The product involved is a Dune Buggy by the trade name “Twister Hammerhead” with model number UM150IIR and model year 2004. This product was manufactured in China and apparently escaped the safety inspection requirements of most products.
