Helmets distributed at Third Thursday recalled by manufacturer


The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently issued a notice of recall of Bell Sports Youth Bicycle Helmets. Walmart notified Sheridan Memorial Hospital of the recall via email.

SMH distributed 12 of the helmets during the Third Thursday festival held in downtown Sheridan on July 21, 2022.

According to information from the CPSC, the recall only involves Bell Soquel Youth helmets made prior to September 2021. The helmets were sold in various colors in the U.S. and Canada. The recalled helmet can be identified by the inner helmet sticker, which has the model’s name “Soquel” and “B0726Y” on it. The helmets also have a date code on the white inner label with “MFG: 08/21” or earlier, indicating a manufacturing date of 2021 or earlier.

CPSC said the helmets violate federal safety regulations because the strap anchor can become dislodged from the helmet when sufficient force is applied. The helmets may fail to protect the wearer in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.

If you received one of the helmets at the Third Thursday event July 21, 2022, please contact Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s quality and safety department at 307-672-1081.
