Multi-purpose helmets sold at Walmart and marketed under the name of skateboarding Tony Hawk have been recalled, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced in July 2022, citing the risk of potential head injuries during use.
Tony Hawk Silver Helmets, manufactured by Sakar International, do not meet “positional stability and retention system requirements,” according to the CPSC.
“The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury,” reads the agency release.
The recall affects more than 12,000 helmets sold at Walmart stores. The Tony Hawk helmets were actually offered as a replacement for another Sakar International product, Sakar Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker Helmets, which were similarly recalled in March due to the risk of head injury in a crash.
No injuries have been reported related to either recall effort.
Buyers of either of the recalled helmets are instructed to stop wearing them immediately and contact Sakar for a $40 refund to Walmart.
