The defective helmets, sold nationally between October 2012 and April 2014, are designed to be used with skateboards, bicycles and scooters.  But an investigation launched after a customer returned a damaged helmet found that the straps may fail during a fall or accident.

Customers are being advised to stop using the helmets immediately and return them for a full refund.

Helmets included in the recall have the serial number FM-170/2500 (found on a sticker inside the helmet) and include coloured and patterned helmets with the following descriptions:

Skate helmet black S/M, XS/S

Skate helmet pink S/M, XS/S

Skate helmet splat S/M, XS/S

Skate helmet camo S/M, XS/S

Roller Derby skate helmet S/M
