AMSAFE Commercial Products Inc. Recalls Go-Kart Seat Belts

Phoenix, AZ (SafetyAlerts) - AMSAFE Commercial Products Inc., said today it is voluntarily recalling about 1,150 Murray go-karts to repair their seat belts. The seatbelts on these go-karts can unintentionally unlatch, posing a risk of serious injury to riders.

AMSAFE has not received any reports of injuries relating to this problem. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recall involves blue Murray Outrage go-karts with model number GT60102x92A or GT60304A, and manufacturing date codes from 00082 to 00147. The model number and date code are located on a decal behind the seat. "MURRAY" is written on the headrest of these go-karts. These go- karts are blue with neon-green pads on the brush bars.

Wal-Mart and Army Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) stores nationwide sold these go-karts from March 2000 through October 2000 for about $850. Consumers should stop riding these go-karts immediately. Call Murray for instructions on how to get your go-kart repaired free of charge. Call Murray at (800) 251-8007 between 7 a.m. and midnight ET any day.
