What is the voluntary recall for?

Despite passing extensive global industry and regulatory testing, Schwinn has recently received three reports that the magnetic chin strap buckle on the Magnetic No-Pinch Buckle Infant Helmets sold exclusively at Target has small plastic covers and magnets that may come loose due to inadequate adhesive, posing a potential choking and magnet ingestion hazard. There have been no reported injuries among the 129,000 chin strap buckles sold since January 2014 that are being recalled. Safety is always our number one priority, and in an abundance of caution, Schwinn approached the CPSC to conduct a voluntary recall of the product.

What should I do?

Consumers should immediately take the helmets away from children and contact Schwinn for instructions on how to receive a free replacement helmet.
