WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

NOTE: Consumers who participated in the March 2011 recall should contact the firm to see if a new repair is required.

Name of Product: Dirt Bikes

Units: About 4,300 (previously recalled in March 2011)

Importer: Baja Inc. d/b/a Baja Motorsports, of Anderson, S.C.

Hazard: The fuel tank can leak, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received 16 reports of fires from leaking fuel, including two reports of minor burns to consumer's legs and one report of a minor burn to a consumer's finger. Ten of the reported incidents, including two of the burn injuries, were received after the March 2011 recall announcement.

Description: This recall involves all model DR50 and DR70 Baja dirt bikes with vehicle identification number (VIN) beginning with "L98," the letter "B" as the 10th character of the VIN and having a yellow dot or line marked on or near the VIN. The model number and VIN are located on the product data plate, which is located on the side of the "goose neck" - where the handle bars meet the body of the bike.

Sold at: Pep Boys and other motor sports stores nationwide from December 2010 through January 2012 for between $450 and $650.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dirt bikes and contact Baja Motorsports to schedule a free repair.
