Under Armour Recalls Over 500,000 Helmet Chin Straps

By Kelly Balamuth on November 11, 2011

Football Helmet Chin Strap RecallSports-related head injuries are common in the news lately. Recent laws have increased the safety standards surrounding concussions in high school athletes and high profile class action lawsuits have been brought involving former NFL football players suing the league for negligent safety measures,. In conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Under Armour recalled more than a half million football helmet chin straps.

Under Armour, a sporting goods heavy weight from Baltimore, Maryland, called back approximately 541,000 Defender model straps for a potential laceration danger. According to the release by the CPSC, the danger exists due to faulty sharp metal clips on the straps that may lacerate the skin of another player during contact. At the time of the safety recall, the company had reported six accounts of injuries related to the product that required medical stitching of an athlete.

The recall pertains to all Under Armour Chin Straps, sold in a variety of color schemes (red, navy, white and black, and royal). The products have a firm nylon casing, chin padding, and the plastic straps (which have the company logo printed on them). The metal clips that connect the straps to the helmet are the subject of the recall. The products were available at sporting good stores across the country between January 2008 and September 2011. They were made in China and imported by JR286, Inc., from Redondo Beach, California.
