WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada, and Bell Sports, of Scotts Valley, CA, have announced the voluntary recall of Bell Exodus full-face bicycle helmets due to a head injury hazard.

The CPSC says the plastic buckle connecting the chin straps can fail during  an accident, making the helmet come off of the wearer's head. At least on incident was reported by a wearer who had to have stitches below their eye because of the failure.

According to CPSC, the recall includes the Bell Exodus full-face bicycle helmet in orange, grey, and black with part/model number 1003825/035011898025, and the Bell Exodus full-face bicycle helmet with blue, grey, gold, white, and black with part/model number 1006714/035011917719. The part/model numbers can be found on a removable sticker on the side of the helmet.

The safety gear was sold on Walmart stores nationwide and on Amazon.com between August 2009 and March 2011 for between $50 and $60.

Owners are asked to stop using the helmets immediately and contact Bell Sports for a replacement or full refund toll-free at (866) 892-6059 between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, via email at answer_desk@bellsports.com, or visit the firm's website at www.bellsports.com.
