WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A hockey equipment distributor is recalling 3,700 Rebok elbow pads sold in the United States and Canada that can crack prematurely, regulators said Tuesday.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, acting in concert with Canadian regulators, said the EP20K Senior Hockey Elbow Pads, manufactured in China by Sports Maska Inc. of Montreal, can crack, fracture or split, increasing the risk of injury.

Reebok-CCM Hockey Inc., a Montpelier, Vt., distributor, reports one player in Canada suffered a broken elbow, the commission said.

The elbow pads were sold across the United States from April through November for about $110. About 2,100 are being recalled in the United States and another 1,600 in Canada, the commission said.

The foam-constructed pads are white with gray and black colored fabric. The name "Reebok" appears on the upper and lower arm sections.

Consumers were advised to stop using the elbow pads and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or replacement.

Consumers can call 800-451-4600 for information.
