The affected helmets may not adequately protect the wearer's head in the event of an impact, and an object may penetrate the helmet.
As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
A helmet that fails to meet the safety requirements can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
20,009 units are affected.
