Triple Eight Distribution of Port Washington, N.Y., has voluntarily recalled about 30,400 bicycle helmets imported from China because they did not comply with federal safety standards for impact resistance, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Although no injuries were reported, the commission said testing showed children wearing the helmets could suffer head injuries in a fall.
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.
The helmets were sold at bicycle and sports stores and other retailers nationwide and online from August 2006 through November 2011 for about $40.
Consumers are advised to stop using the product immediately and contact Triple Eight for a full refund. For additional information, contact Triple Eight toll-free at 1-888-548-8518 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or go to www.triple8.com.
