青少年全地形車（ATVs）不符合美國聯邦ATV強制性安全標準的要求。 B125型號全地形車（ATVs）超過美國聯邦對10歲和以上年齡兒童的最高車輛行駛速度的限制。 Madix 110型號全地形車的手剎車不能防止車輛移動。而且，駕車者高速行駛而撞車時，如果身體或頭部撞到手把會構成割傷危害。不符合美國聯邦安全標準的全地形車構成嚴重受傷和死亡的風險。
The recall involves EGL and ACE-branded Youth ATVs, models MADIX 110 and B125. The vehicles were sold in various colors including orange, red, blue, pink, and green and marketed for children ages 10 and older. The name of the vehicle is printed on a label located on both sides of the vehicle. The model number is stamped into the metal plate located on the left side, under the rear body. The phrase “This ATV is subject to EGL MOTOR INC’s action plan approved by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission” is printed on a label located under the model number plate.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact EGL Motor to make an appointment for a free repair from an authorized repair shop. Reflectors, headlights and a chest protector will be installed on the ATV. EGL will also repair the parking brake, speed capability and spark arrestor.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
