Riders wearing these helmets are not properly protected from falls, and could suffer severe head injuries. CPSC and Rand International are not aware of any injuries or incidents involving these products. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries and incidents. The recalled helmets are various models of the L.A. Cruisin' bicycle helmets. The helmets were sold in various child, youth and adult sizes.
