The inline skating helmet’s plastic shell can crack where the straps attach, causing the helmet to shift and move on the wearer’s head. This can result in a head injury hazard to the user in the event of a fall.
This recall involves black Rollerblade brand Maxxum helmets. “Rollerblade” is printed on the side of the helmet, a white inline skate logo is printed on the back of the helmet and a label on the inside of the helmet contains the model number “YJ-219” and production date of October 2014 or earlier. The SKU number 06520210100 is printed on the helmet’s box.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact the firm for instructions on receiving a full refund.
