Sakar International of Edison, N.J., is recalling about 12,655 Tony Hawk Silver Helmets.
The helmets do not comply with the positional stability and retention system requirements of the federal safety standard for bike helmets. That means they can fail to protect wearers in the event of a crash.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Tony Hawk Silver Metallic multi-purpose helmets. They are silver and include black straps, a black buckle, and Tony Hawk’s signature printed on the outside.
The white warning label on the inside of the helmet contains Item No. AGE2515STH-SIL on the top right corner.
The helmets were also provided as replacement helmets for Sakar Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker Helmets in March 2022, which are now also being recalled. Sakar will contact consumers who received the replacement helmet as a remedy.
The helmets, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart from March 2022, through June 2022, for about $30.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Sakar for instructions on receiving a refund in the form of a $40 Walmart gift card.
Consumers should not return the helmet to Walmart. Instead, they should contact Sakar for the gift card and to facilitate returns using prepaid postage packaging. Walmart will contact all known purchasers.
Consumers may contact Sakar by phone at (800) 592-9541 anytime or online for more information.
