msdosfs kernel panic with a broken usb flash drive

Recently I have two broken USB thumb drives. I tried to mount /dev/da0s1
by using mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt, and I got the kernel panic.
I tried another broken usb drive, the result is the same, kernel panic.
I also tried it on Linux using "mount -t /dev/sdb1 /mnt", no panic.

Does it make sense that mounting broken USB drives would cause the
kernel panic?
Any idea how to solve this issue? thank you.
