The magnetic buckle on the helmet’s chin strap contains small plastic covers and magnets that can come loose, posing a risk of choking and magnet ingestion to young children, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Pacific Cycle has received three reports of the plastic cover coming loose. No injuries have been reported.
The bicycle helmets are made for infants from 1 to 3 years old. The helmet and its straps come in various colors and design patterns. The buckles have small plastic covers and enclosed magnets. “SCHWINN” is printed on the front of the helmets.
