Faulty Hard Hats Sold Online Over Eight-Year Period
About 7,500 hard hats that were advertised as providing protection from electrical shocks have recently been recalled due to the risk of injury to users. According to a recall notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the maker of the devices, 3M Company, is issuing a voluntary recall because the hard hats in question do not actually provide adequate defense against shocks or electrocution. The company has not yet received any reports of injuries resulting from this product defect. However, consumers are urged to stop using these hard hats immediately and contact 3M Company about receiving replacements.
The recall affects three lines of the company’s vented white hard hats. The brand “3M” or “AOSafety” appears on the brim of these hats, as does the phrase “XLR8 VENTED.” The recall applies only to hats that were sold online, but it includes all units purchased between January 2008 and April 2016.
