129,000 helmets are being recalled due to a choking hazard with the special magnetic chin strap.
Children’s bicycle helmets were recalled by Pacific Cycle after a potential hazard with the chin straps of the models sold.
The helmet’s concerned were sold at Target stores from January 2014 through to April 2016 for between $18 and $25 and have the words “Schwinn” on the front as well as labeled with a “no-pinch” chin strap. The brightly colored helmets, designed to fit 1 to 3 year olds, could pose a choking hazard due to the magnetic chin strap buckle coming loose.
Although no injuries have been reported, the company is recalling around 129,000 of the helmets due to the fault. They urge people to discard the helmet if they have one and contact Pacific Cycle for a replacement.
To contact Pacific Cycle by phone, call the toll-free number 1-877-564-2261 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CST.
