The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Motorcycle Helmets are subject to this recall:

  • “Peanut” Fibreglass Motorcycle Helmets, model XR-205, manufacture dates: Dec 2009, Jan 2010 and May 2010

According to the ACCC, although no injuries or safety defects have been reported in respect of X-Rated branded Motorcycle Helmets, identical Helmets manufactured in the same facility with different branding did not meet performance requirements that are outlined in the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1698:2006. There is a possibility, therefore, the Helmets may not provide adequate protection to the wearer in the event of an accident and may increase the risk of death or serious injury to the wearer.
