Pro-Tec has recently issued a recall for its Pro-Tec City Lite and Pro-Tec Street Lite adult multisport helmets because, according to the CPSC, the buckle on the helmet fails to meet current federal safety standards, posing a risk of head injury.
The recalled helmets can be identified by the markings “ERGO-LOK” and the “UTX D-FLEX” logo. They also have a date code inside in the format MM/DD/YYYY-090EO.
They were sold at McCully Bicycle & Sporting Goods, Quality Bicycle Products, Uncle Funky’s Boards, and other sports specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and ProtecB2C.com.
