Football helmets recalled for risk of cracking
A Michigan-based company issued a recall on thousands of football helmets due to complaints that they may cause injuries if they crack while in use, an article of cpsc.gov reported on August 14.
Reports said at least 5,900 football helmets manufactured by Xenith LLC have hard shells that can crack during use. At least four models of Xenith helmets were covered in the recall. Intended users reportedly are liable to sustain head injuries if the helmet fails to protect them while they are playing. The recalling company and the USCPSC have not received any reports of injuries. However, 29 incidents of breaking helmet shells have come to their attention. Xenith will address the problem by issuing a product replacement for free.
