Update: Sakar Recalls Tony Hawk Helmets Again Over Head Injury Risk
For the second time in 6 months, Sakar International Inc. is recalling its multi-purpose kids' helmets  because they do not comply with the positional stability and retention system requirements of the U.S. CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, and can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.
Specifically, this recall affects 3 helmet models from Sakar International: Tony Hawk, Credhedz Lizard, and Crayola Dry-Erase helmets.
The recalled helmets were sold online and at Big Lots, Ollies Bargain Outlet, and other stores nationwide from November 2020 through October 2022 for about $30.
If you purchased a helmet that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Sakar for instructions to return the helmet for a $30 gift card. Do not return the helmet to the retailer.
This recall began on January 19, 2023.
