The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Reebok-CCM, have announced a voluntary recall of the company's hockey helmets. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
About 1,000 hockey helmets distributed by Reebok-CCM Hockey U.S. Inc., of Montpelier, VT. The helmet's chinstrap can unexpectedly disengage while in use. If this happens, the helmet can fall off, posing a head and neck injury risk to consumers. There have been no reported injuries.
This recall involves RBK and CCM brand hockey helmets. Helmets included in this recall have a HECC sticker with date code JUN – 2013. HECC stickers and model numbers are located on the back of the helmets.
The helmets were manufactured in Canada and sold at sporting goods stores nationwide and Internet retailers from May 2008 through July 2008 for between $80 and $200.
Consumers should immediately stop using and return the helmets to the place of purchase for a free replacement helmet.
