Recall Announced Of Bicycle Helmets Marketed For Children

Due to a risk of head injury, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of "Little Tricky" and "Sector 9" bicycle helmets.  The helmets, made in China and imported by Triple Eight Distribution, Inc., are marketed for use by children.  They were sold nationwide from August 2006 through November 2011.  According to a news release from the Commission, "Product testing demonstrated that these helmets do not comply with CPSC safety standards for impact resistance."  A child wearing one of these helmets could sustain a serious injury in a fall or crash.

Consumers should not permit children to wear these helmets and should contact Triple Eight for a full refund.
