Recall of 34,000 Little Tricky Kids' Bike Helmets

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a voluntary recall of about 30,400 kids' bike helmets.  The helmets, which were manufactured by Triple Eight Distribution, Inc., of Port Washington, N.Y. and sold under the brand name Little Tricky, were recalled due to concerns that the helmets do not comply with CPSC safety standards for impact resistance, which could cause children to suffer head injuries in a fall.

The recalled bike helmets include a large Little Tricky logo on both sides of the helmet.  The recall affects two varieties of Little Tricky bike helmets - the Triple Eight and Sector 9 helmets.  The Triple Eight S/M EPS Liner helmets feature a hard black inner EPS foam liner and come in black, white, bone, blue and army green. The Sector 9 S/M EPS Liner helmets also feature an EPS liner and come in gray, white, black, blue and green. Both the types of helmets have an interior label indicating the size and the helmet's manufacture date.

The recalled Little Tricky bike helmets were sold at bicycle stores, sporting goods stores, and other retailers throughout the United States and online from August 2006 through November 2011.  The helmets retailed for about $40.

Consumers should stop using the helmets and contact Triple Eight for a full refund.  For additional information, consumers can contact Triple Eight toll free at (888) 548-8518 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website at www.triple8.com.

Bike helmets are critical to preventing serious head injuries in children.  As explained in a recent article in East County Magazine, bike helmets help prevent head injuries in the event of a fall by absorbing the force from one object, such as an automobile, and protecting the upper part of the forehead and back of the head.

In the article, Sue Cox, Director of Trauma Services for Rady Children's Hospital, stated, "Head injuries have potentially the most severe consequences in the both the short and long term."

If you own one of the recalled bike helmets, you should stop using the helmet immediately and make sure that your child wears another safe bicycle helmet.  If your child has suffered a head injury as a result of a bike accident, you may be entitled to compensation for any injuries suffered.  Contact the experienced Illinois product liability attorneys at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish to learn about a possible personal injury or product liability claim.
