Pacific Cycle has moved to recall almost 130 thousand bike helmets for infants due to a violation with U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards.

Recall date: 2016-05-17
Category: Health & Safety Products
Product description: Schwinn infant bicycle helmets
Problem: the magnetic buckle on the helmet’s chin strap contains small plastic covers and magnets that can come loose, posing a risk of choking and magnet ingestion to young children
Store outlets: Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com
Selling dates: January 2014 to April 2016
Origin: Made in China

The company received three reports of the plastic coming loose, but no injuries were reported at the time. If you have one of the recalled helmets, here are the steps to follow:

  • Stop using the helmet immediately and contact Pacific Cycle so they can instruct you on how to obtain a replacement helmet at no charge.
  • For more information, visit the company website, or call (877) 564-2261 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central time.
  • Read about the recalled bicycle helmets on the CPSC website.
