Baja Motorsports to Pay $4.3 Million for Failing to Report Minibike, Go-Kart Defects
Baja Inc. agreed in Oct. 2014 to pay a $4.3 million civil penalty to settle a complaint from federal regulators that the company delayed reporting safety defects in its go-karts and minibikes, according to the New York Times [1.].
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Baja failed to notify the agency of consumer complaints related to numerous recalls. There were at least 4 complaints of gas-cap leaks resulting in fires, including 1 that caused a “serious” burn to a child. There were also more than 20 reports of sticking throttles resulting in unintended acceleration.
CPSC requires that it be notified within 24 hours of a company receiving information “reasonably supporting the conclusion that a product contains a defect which could create a substantial product hazard, creates an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death, or fails to comply with any consumer product safety rule.”
