Shark is recalling 2,538 medium and extra large RAW motorcycle helmets manufactured August 22, 2013, to June 29, 2014.
During testing, some of the affected helmets failed to conform to the impact attenuation requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
By wearing a helmet that fails to meet impact requirements, the user may not be adequately protected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Shark will notify and direct owners to contact service provider Realtime Results who will replace the helmet, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 20, 2015.
Owners may contact Realtime Results at 1-888-770-7157.
