Four recent recalls reported by different companies affect products likely purchased by families with young children or infants.

Infant bicycle helmet

Pacific Cycle has recalled infant bike helmets because the magnetic buckle on the helmet’s chin strap contains small plastic covers and the magnets can come loose, posing a risk of choking and magnet ingestion to young children.

The helmets, which are sold at Target stores and online, are made for infants ranging from 1 to 3 years old. The helmet and its straps come in various colors and design patterns. “SCHWINN” is printed on the front of the helmets. Only helmets with the magnetic no-pinch chin strap buckles are affected by this recall.

Consumers should immediately take the helmets away from children and contact Pacific Cycle for instructions on how to receive a free replacement helmet. Call 877-564-2261 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST Mondays through Fridays, email customerservice@pacific-cycle.com or visit www.schwinnbikes.com or www.target.com for more information.
