Texas-based TJ Power Sports is pulling about 400 Twister Hammerhead dune buggies because the seatbelt adjustment may break, posing an ejection danger, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The company has learned of one incident in which a seatbelt broke that resulted in nerve damage to a consumer's arm.
The recall affects dune buggies with the model number UM150IIR and the model year 2004. The vehicles were sold through U.S. dealers and through online retailers from July 2004 through December 2004 for about $3,000 US.
The dune buggies were manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using the vehicles and should contact the company for a replacement seat belt.
