BICYCLE HELMETS

DETAILS: Bicycle helmets imported from China by Triple Eight Distribution of Port Washington, N.Y., sold at bicycle and sports stores and other retailers nationwide and online from August 2006 through November 2011 for about $40. Little Tricky helmets are marketed for children and youth and feature a large Little Tricky logo on both sides of the helmet.

WHY: Product testing demonstrated the helmets do not comply with Consumer Product Safety Commission safety standards for impact resistance, meaning a rider could suffer head injuries in a fall.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 30,400.
