Sakar International is recalling about 12,655 Tony Hawk silver metallic multi-purpose helmets that were sold exclusively at Walmart due to a risk of a head injury.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recalled helmets do not comply with the positional stability and retention system requirements of the U.S. CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets. The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.
This recall involves Tony Hawk Silver Metallic multi-purpose helmets. The helmets are silver with black straps and a black buckle. Tony Hawk’s signature is printed on the outside of the helmet. The white warning label on the inside of the helmet contains the Item No. AGE2515STH-SIL on the top right corner. These Tony Hawk Silver Metallic multi-purpose helmets were also provided as replacement helmets for Sarkar Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker Helmets in March 2022 and now themselves are being recalled. Sakar will contact consumers who received the replacement helmet as a remedy.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Sakar for instructions on receiving a refund in the form of a $40 Walmart gift card. Consumers should not return the helmet to Walmart and should contact Sakar for the gift card and to facilitate returns using prepaid postage packaging. Walmart will contact all known purchasers.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The helmets were sold at Walmart stores nationwide and online at www.walmart.com from March 2022 through June 2022 for about $30.
