January 23, 2024 — Retrospec recalled more than 72,000 bicycle helmets for kids that may fail to prevent head injuries.
The recall involves Scout Kid’s Bike Helmets that were sold between February 2019 and March 2023.
No injuries were reported, but the helmets “can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury,” according to the recall notice.
The problem is that the helmets do not have adequate coverage, positional stability, and labeling requirements, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The recalled helmets were sold in 13 colors. They can be identified by a hang-tag labeled with the name “Retrospec” and the “Scout” brand-name. The word “Retrospec” or the “R” logo appear on the right side.
The manufacturer is asking customers to immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact the company for information on how to get a full refund. To learn more, visit the recall website at https://retrospec.com/pages/retrospec-scout-recall.
