WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the nationwide recall Wednesday of Chinese-made collectible mini helmets due to a health risk.

The CPSC said paint on the approximately 1,400 helmets imported by the Bell Racing Co. of Santa Cruz, Calif., contains excessive levels of lead, in violation of the federal lead paint standard.

The recalled items are six-inch tall, collectible, miniature helmets modeled after helmets worn by several race car drivers. Models being recalled are the Terry Borcheller helmet, part number 2005740; the Kurt Busch helmet, part number 2001368; and the Vitor Meira helmet, part number 2001381. The part number is located on the product's packaging with the UPC.

The helmets were sold nationwide from March through November for about $50.

Consumers with questions can contact Bell Racing toll-free at 866-892-6059 or visit the firm's Web site at http://www.acprecall.com.
