FXAS21002 latch-up due to shock

I am using the FXAS21002 gyro in a product which I am drop testing. The output of one or more axis (depending on drop angle) will latch at plus or minus full scale after impact. Gyro re-initialization will clear the latch-up. Is this a known phenomenon? Would the use of the rate threshold detection prevent latch-up from occurring and/or detect that latch-up has occurred?
