Choking concerns has prompted Pacific Cycle to recall infant bicycle helmets with magnetic no-pinch buckle chin straps.
The magnetic buckle on the chin strap has small plastic covers and magnets that can come loose, which could cause a child to choke, according to an announcement posted to the U.S. Consumer Safety Commission website.
The products, designed for children between 1 and 3, come in various colors and have “SCHWINN” printed on the front. The company has learned of three cases of the plastic covers coming loose, but no injuries have been reported.
You can reach Pacific Cycle at 877-564-2261 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time Monday through Friday. You can reach the company by email at or online at
