SmartPool of Lakewood, N.J., is recalling about 480 Bee Free children’s helmets.
The helmets were incorrectly advertised and marketed for children aged 2 years or older. However, they do not comply with minimum safety requirements for children younger than 5 and pose a risk of head injury to those children.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Bee Free-branded children’s multi-purpose helmets which can be used for multiple sports.
The helmets were sold in yellow with black straps and black clip in size small, fitting head circumference from 48 cm to 53 cm (18.9 to 21.2 inches).
Bee Free is printed on the back of the helmets. Model RPBFHYS is printed on a label on the inside of the helmet. S for small is printed on another label also on the inside of the helmet.
Only the small-sized helmets are included in this recall.
The helmets, manufactured in China, were sold online at Amazon.com, Lowes.com, Homedepot.com and Walmart.com from May 2020, through January 2021, for about $16.
