March 23, 2012 at 3:10 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, March 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Easton Raptor lacrosse helmets due to chin guards that can break.

About 12,000 helmets were imported from China by Easton Sports of Scotts Valley, Calif., and sold nationwide from November 2011 through March 2012 for about $250.

The chin bar on the helmets can break, posing a risk of facial injury.

The firm has received six reports of the chin bar cracking or breaking on impact with a ball or lacrosse stick.

The recall involves all Easton Raptor Lacrosse Helmets. "Easton" is printed on either side of the back of the helmet and on the jaw strap.

"RAPTOR" is printed low on the back of the helmet in the center.

Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled helmets and contact Easton Sports for a full refund.

Consumers can call 877- 279-8545 for information.
