On August 24, 2023, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission posted a recall involving multi-purpose kids bike helmets. The recall affected Ecnup Kids Bike Helmets that were sold online exclusively at Amazon.com for between $20 and $30 from January 2022 through February 2023.

The recalled helmets come in size Extra Small (XS), fitting a head circumference of about 18-1/2 to 20-1/2 inches. The helmets come in a variety of colors, including pink, purple, blue, “dinosaur blue,” and “aqua ocean world” with red removable padding, black straps and a black buckle. The serial numbers on the helmets are printed on a white label on the inside of the helmet.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Ecnup for a full refund. It was found that these helmets do not comply with the coverage, positional stability, and labeling requirements of the CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets. They may fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.

To receive a refund for the helmets, consumers should destroy the helmet by cutting off the straps, email photos of the helmet with the straps cut off to [email protected] to prove destruction, and then dispose of the recalled helmet.
