Bell Sports Recalls Helmets With Potentially Faulty Straps

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of Bell Sports "Exodus" full-face bike helmets. The recall was made because "the plastic buckle that connects the chin straps can fail, causing the helmet to come off the wearer's head. This poses a head injury hazard to riders in the event of a fall."

Any company that manufacturers a product that is "unreasonably dangerous when put to a foreseeable use" may be strictly liable under Illinois law for any injuries that stem from the use of the defective product. If you have been injured while riding and think it was due to a defective product, please contact Illinois Bicycle Lawyer Mike Keating at or 312-208-7702.
