ABUS Mobile Security of Chicago, Ill., is recalling about 790 ABUS MountZ youth helmets.

The helmets do not comply with the federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, posing a risk of head injury.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the ABUS ACM (MountZ) youth medium-sized helmets with about a 21-inch circumference and attached chin strap sold in velvet black and polar white.

“ABUS” is printed on the left side, front, and back of the helmets.

The model ACM (MountZ) with the manufactured date of March 2020, or October 2020, is printed on a label on the inside of the helmet.

The helmets, manufactured in China, were sold at independent bike shops nationwide from April 2020, through October 2021, for about $80.
