Rollerblade-Brand Helmets Recalled – Head Injury Hazard
About the Rollerblade Helmet Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the helmet’s plastic shell can crack at the point where the chins straps attach. When this happens the helmet can shift and move on the wearer’s head and fail to provide adequate protection should the wearer fall.
No incidents of injury have been reported. The firm recommends that all consumers stop using the skating helmets immediately, and will provide a full refund to consumers as a solution.
