Reebok-CCM is withdrawing hockey helmets sold in Canada and the U.S. because the chinstraps can unexpectedly unfasten, meaning the helmet can come off, creating a risk of neck and head injury to users.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall affects RBK and CCM helmets with an HECC sticker and a date code of JUN-2013. The following models are included in the recall:
- HT6K Combo
- HT4K Combo
- HTV10 Combo
- HTV08 Combo
- HT692 Combo
The helmets, which were made in Canada, were sold through stores and online retailers from May 2008 through July 2008. Consumers should stop using the helmets and return them to the retailer for a replacement.
