Bicycle Helmets Recalled by Bell Sports


Washington, DC: Bell Sports, of Scotts Valley, CA, is recalling about 31,100 full-face bicycle helmets in the US and a further 2,500 in Canada because the plastic buckle that connects the chin straps can fail, causing the helmet to come off the wearer's head. This poses a head injury hazard to riders in the event of a fall.

The firm has received one report of a buckle failing during an accident, resulting in an injury that required stitches below the wearer's eye.

This recall involves Bell Exodus full-face helmets with a plastic buckle on the chinstrap. The helmets have an angled visor and were sold in youth size. The model and part number can be found on a removable sticker located on the side of the helmet.

The helmets were sold through Walmart stores nationwide and Amazon.com between August 2009 and March 2011 for between $50 and $60.
