Port Washington, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Triple Eight Distribution, have voluntarily recalled bicycle helmets for children and youth over a risk of head injury while using the product. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on January 6, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the helmets do not comply with CPSC safety standards for impact resistance, which can lead consumers to suffer impact head injuries if involved in a fall.
“The recalled items are multi-purpose helmets also sold for use as bicycle helmets. Little Tricky helmets are marketed for children and youth, and feature a large Little Tricky logo on both sides of the helmet. They come in one size and in black, white, pink and green. Triple Eight S/M EPS Liner helmets feature a hard black inner EPS foam liner and come in black, white, bone, blue and army green. Sector 9 S/M EPS Liner helmets feature the same EPS liner and come in gray, white, black, blue and green. Both the Triple Eight and Sector 9 helmets have an interior label indicating the size ‘S/M’ for small/medium and a manufacture date indicated as month/year (ex. APR/2011). Only Triple Eight and Sector 9 size ‘S/M’ EPS Liner helmets are affected,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Triple Eight for a full refund.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Triple Eight toll free at (888) 548-8518 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.triple8.com.
