Additional information:

Among the 57 recalls the European Union has announced in its third report of September 2018, the following recall notification was made:

Beal branded Mercury Kid Climbing Helmets Beal branded Mercury Kid Climbing Helmets sold in size of 48-58 cm, with a manufacturer date of 7/16 and a batch/lot designation of MK042632516.

The type of hazard presented in these recalled Climbing Helmet products include suspected failure to protect the child’s head in the event of a fall or other incident requiring head protection.

Specifically, the vertical impact energy absorption capacity of the recalled Climbing Helmets is reportedly insufficient and the retention system is inadequate. Consequently, the Helmet does not provide sufficient protection in case of an impact and the child might suffer from head injuries.

The recalled Beal branded Mercury Kid Climbing Helmets, therefore, do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Personal Protective Equipment Directive and the relevant European Standard EN 12492 in that they pose a serious health and/or safety hazard to those who use them and suffer a fall or other incident requiring head protection.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Climbing Helmets nor let your child rely on this protection. Instead, please return the Climbing Helmets to the store or online outlet from which you purchased them for a full refund.
