Children’s bicycle helmets sold on Amazon.com have been recalled because of the chance they could fail to protect children in a bike crash.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission posted a recall notice for Ouwoer Kids Bike Helmets sold exclusively on Amazon from March 2022 through November 2022.
The helmets were labeled as bike helmets but were also marketed to skateboarders and roller skaters.
The label has the production date 202201.
The CPSC notice says the helmets do not comply with the positional stability and impact attenuation requirements of the agency’s federal safety standard for bicycle helmets.
That means they can fail to protect a child in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury, the CPSC said.
Consumers should destroy the helmets by cutting off the straps, the CPSC said. They should then email a photo of the destroyed helmet to Ouwoer@hotmail.com to get a full refund.
Anyone with questions can email the company at Ouwoer@hotmail.com.
