Washington, DC (CNN)The scooter-sharing startup Lime continues to clash with its suppliers amid questions about the safety of its scooters.
Chinese company Okai is pushing back on claims that it’s the source of flawed Lime scooters.
Earlier this month, Lime said it removed all of its scooters manufactured by Okai following reports that the baseboard where users stand can snap in half and endanger riders. Some riders have suffered injuries, and an Okai scooter may have contributed to a fatality. Lime uses scooters from multiple manufacturers, but doesn’t reveal exactly how many.
