Consumer Reports released a statement earlier this week that Under Armour has recalled chin straps for football helmets due to laceration hazards. The football helmet chin straps being recalled are the Under Armour Defender Chin Straps.
The faulty chin straps for football helmets have sharp metal snaps that may cut players. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Under Armour has received six reports of injuries that required stitches. Consumers are being warned to immediately stop using the recalled chin straps and contact Under Armour for a free replacement chin strap.
