Rollerblade USA of West Lebanon, N.H., is recalling about 500 Rollerblade inline skating helmets.
The 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.
No incidents or injuries have been reported
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.
The helmets, manufactured in China, were sold at Inline Warehouse, Paragon Athletic Goods, Summit Sports and other sporting goods stores and Rollerblade helmet dealers nationwide and online at www.amazon.com, www.inlineskates.com, www.inlinewarehouse.com and www.rollerblade.com from November 2014, through January 2016, for about $60.
