WASHINGTON — Baja Motorsports recalled 308,000 mini bikes and go-carts Thursday after a child was seriously burned.
The gas caps on these Chinese-made vehicles can leak or detach, posing a fire hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said. Also, the throttles can get stuck, allowing the mini bikes and go-carts to unexpectedly accelerate.
The Phoenix-based company has received nine reports of leaking or detached gas caps, including one that led to a serious burn injury to a child. The company has also received 25 reports of stuck throttles, including multiple reports of injuries to the face and body.
