Natchez, MS—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BB Buggies LLC, announced a voluntary recall of about 9,300 classic buggies for crash hazards they pose. The CPSC announced the recall on December 22, 2010.

The recall was initiated after discovering that the off-road vehicles can accelerate without warning, posing a injury risks to the operator and/or bystanders.

The CPSC reported, “This expanded recall involves all Bad Boy Classic model off-road utility vehicles manufactured from early 2003 through May 2010. Bad Boy Buggy Classic models come in camouflage patterns, hunter green, red and black colors. The XT model is not included in this recall. Consumers who participated in the October 2009 recall should also participate in this recall, because the initial repair did not adequately fix the hazard.”

Consumers are advised to contact their BB Buggies dealer for a free repair.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact BB Buggies toll-free at (855) 738-3711 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their Web site at www.badboybuggies.com.
