According to the Cortland County Health Department Facebook page, a bike helmet that they have distributed in the past has been recalled.

Whether it came from the Cortland County Health Department or was purchased elsewhere, a certain type of Retrospec Scout bike helmet recall has been announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. About 72,000 have been distributed in the United States and around 150 in Canada.

The Retrospec website notes that the recall is for Scout kids’ bicycle helmets in XS and S. The helmets do not comply with the coverage, positional stability, and labeling requirements of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.

The Retrospec Scout kid's bike helmets part of the recall include Blippi, Blush, Brash Blue, Chameleon, Cool Mint, Matte Forest Green, Matte Black, Matte Navy, Matte White, Matte Burnt Orange, Matte Green, Matte Royal Blue, and Matte Whisper Pink. The helmets were sold with a green hang tag label listing the name “Retrospec,” the Scout brand name, and the helmet size. The word Retrospec or the Retrospec “R” logo appears on the right side of the helmet.

For more information, and photos of the recalled helmets and to register for a refund, visit the Retrospec website. You can also contact Retrospec at 888-488-2369 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday.
