Youth Bike Helmets Recalled

Children’s bicycle helmets handed out at events on campus last year have been recalled by the manufacturer.

The helmets, Retrospec Scout in sizes small and extra-small, were given out by the UC Davis Police Department at events like Picnic Day, Thank Goodness for Staff, Take Our Children to Work Day and elsewhere between April and June.

The department distributed 76 of the helmets, purchased with a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety.

  • Get out your fender(s) and rain gear: keep yourself and your stuff dry.
