Easton Raptor Lacrosse Helmets Recalled Due to Facial Injury Hazard


Posted on Apr 09, 2012

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 12,000 Easton Raptor Lacrosse Helmets were recalled on March 22, 2012 due to facial injury hazard.

There were reports that the chin bar cracked or broke on impact with a lacrosse stick or a ball causing the wearer to suffer jaw and/or facial injuries. 

These helmets were sold online or at sporting goods stores from November 2011 to March 2012 for about $250. 

The description of the helmet is as follows:

  • "Easton" printed on either side or the back of the helmet and on the jaw strap;
  • "Raptor" is printed low on the back of the helmet in the center; and
  • Colors: white; matte black; silver; navy blue and while; royal blue and white; and red and white.
