Bell Sports, in association with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has recalled about 33,600 Bell Exodus full-face bicycle helmets due to a defect involving the chin straps.
The plastic buckle that connects the chin straps can fail, causing the helmet to slip off the rider’s head. This creates a head injury risk should the rider fall off Â the bicycle.
Bell Sports has received one report of a buckle failure, resulting in an injured rider receiving stitches below the eye.
The recalled model and part number can found on a removable sticker located on the side of the helmet.
The recalled models are:

The helmets were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and on Amazon.com between August 2009 and March 2011 for $50-$60.
Bell Sports will replace the helmet or refund the purchase price on recalled units.
For more information, consumers may contact Bell Sports at 1-866-892-6059 from 9am to 6pm EST Monday through Friday, by email at email@example.com, or on the company’s website at www.bellsports.com.
