Reebock Hockey Helmets Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Reebok-CCM Hockey U.S. Inc., of Montpelier, Vermont, has just issued a <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">recall of about 1,000 Reebok Hockey Helmets due to a head and neck injury hazard.  The recalled hockey helmets were manufactured in Canada.  The helmet’s chinstrap can unexpectedly disengage while in use, which can cause the helmet to fall off, posing a head and neck injury risk to consumers, said the CPSC.  To date, no injuries have been reported.
