Triple Eight Distribution, Inc. recently announced a recall of Bicycle Helmets for children and youth. No injuries have been reported.
Product testing demonstrated that these helmets do not comply with CPSC safety standards for impact resistance, posing a risk of head injuries in a fall.
The bicycle helmets were sold from August 2006 through November 2011. 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.
Approximately 30,400 bicycle helmets were sold at bicycle and sports stores and other retailers nationwide and online at www.triples8.com between August 2006 and November 2011 for about $40.
