RECALL:  KBC America announced a recall of 456 Harley-Davidson helmets manufactured in March 2011.

According to Motorcycle & Powersports News, certain Harley-Davidson Hybrid Ultra-Light Classic Cruiser Half Helmets failed to conform a Federal Safety Standard, which specifies the requirements for helping to reduce the force of potential impact and penetration.

KBC America will recall only certain L, XL and XXL units. Users wearing these specific helmets may not be adequately protected in the event of a crash, and thus increasing the chances of injury.

Consumers will be asked to bring the affected products to a Harley-Davidson dealer. The dealer will confirm that the helmet is affected by this recall by inspecting the GM label on the helmet’s interior shell under the snap-in liner. The helmet part numbers are 98336-09VM/000L, 98336-09VM/002L and 98336-09VM/022L, and the affected label GM code for these three sizes is GM00032205.  Customers may contact KBC at 1-818-526-7771. (Recall campaign number is 13E025000.)
