Posted by:

Pacific Infant helmetOnly a couple weeks after another successful helmet distribution and brain injury prevention program at a local Fairfax County elementary school,  Abrams Landau, Ltd. attorney Doug Landau was made aware of a recall of potentially dangerous helmets.

Pacific Cycle is recalling approximately 129,000 Schwinn “No-Pinch Buckle” Infant Bike Helmets due to a choking hazard.  The small plastic covers and magnets on the chin strap’s magnetic buckle can come loose and be ingested by young children.

The helmets were sold in Target stores and online from January 2014 through April 2016 for between $18 and $25.

Consumers should immediately take the helmet away from the child and contact Pacific Cycle for a free replacement:
