West Virginia Consumer Alert: SunL Group SLA90 Youth ATV Can Cause Injury

Posted on Apr 12, 2011

April 11, 2011 - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently terminated production for the All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Action Plan with SunL Group, Inc. In light of this termination, the CPSC urges the public to discontinue use of the SunL Group SLA90 Youth ATV. This vehicle is not equipped with manual fuel shut-off, front brakes or padding to cover the handlebar's sharp edges. All of these factors could lead to injuries.

An ATV Action Plan is required in order for ATV manufacturers to import or distribute their merchandise. The CSPC must approve of this plan, which details what the company will do to promote rider safety. This may include establishing age recommendations for equipment use, rider training information and ATV marketing policies.

It was recently discovered that SunL Group is no longer in business and can no longer fulfill the terms of the ATV Action Plan agreement. As it stands, the company is also unable to fix the known issues associated with its 2008 SLA90 Youth ATV recall.

The safety issues associated with the SunL Group SLA90 Youth ATV can result in serious injuries. If you are currently in possession of this ATV, you are strongly advised to stop using it.
