The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging consumers to stop using about 8,500 Morpher flat-folding bicycle helmets and dispose of them to prevent further usage.
The helmets do not comply with the federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, posing a risk of head injury.
Morpher is no longer in business and is unable to conduct a recall. No incidents or injuries are reported.
This action involves Morpher flat-folding bicycle helmets sold in one size, fitting head circumference from 20.5 to 22.8 inches. The helmets were sold with a storage bag and in the following solid or dotted colors: Gloss or matte black, gray, red, silver, white and yellow.
The Morpher name and logo appear on both sides of the helmet. The Morpher logo appears on the back of the helmet.
The helmets, manufactured in Hong Kong, were sold online at Amazon.com, CyclingSafetyGear.com and MorpherHelmet.com from April 2017 through November 2019 for about $150.
