Honeywell is recalling more than 82,000 hard hats because they may fail putting workers at risk of head injury.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have been no injuries or incidents reports, however, the company is voluntarily recalling Honeywell’s type 1 Fibre-Metal E2 and North Peak A79 hard hats.
The hats are being recalled because the company said, if an impact occurred, the hats may not provide the level of protection they were designed and certified for.
The hats were manufactured in a variety of colors. The Fibre-Metal hats affected by the recall were manufactured in April 2016, May 2016, December 2017 or January 2018.
The North Peak hats were manufactured from April 2016 through January 2018, only those with a mold identification No. 4 are included in the recall. The mold identification number and manufacture date are located on the underside of the hat’s brim.
The hard hats were sold nationwide at industrial protective equipment distributors’ stores, e-commerce portals and on Amazon and other websites from April 2016 through January 2018. Customers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled hats and contact Honeywell. The company is providing a product credit or voucher equal to the purchase price of the recalled hard hat.
