Honeywell is recalling its Fibre-Metal E2 and North Peak A79 hard hats due to their potential for failing to protect users from impact, posing a risk of head injury. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hard hats and contact Honeywell to receive a product credit or voucher equal to the purchase price of the recalled hard hat.
Approximately 82,500 of the hard hats were sold in the U.S. and 65,550 in Canada.
No injuries or incidents have been reported. Honeywell is voluntarily recalling the hard hats under the CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
How do you know if your hard hat is one of the recalled models?
The Fibre-Metal E2 hard hats have a manufacture date of April 2016, May 2016, December 2017 or January 2018. The North Peak A79 hard hats were manufactured from April 2016 through January 2018. Only North Peak A79 hard hats with mold identification number 4 are included on this recall. North by Honeywell, the mold identification number, and the manufacture date can be found on the underside of the hat’s brim. The date code is in a clock format: The numbers around the circle correspond to the 12 months of the year, the arrow points to the month of manufacture and the numbers on either side of the arrow represent the last two digits of the year.
The recalled hard hats were sold through industrial protective equipment distributors nationwide in their stores and through their e-commerce portals and online at www.Amazon.com and other websites from April 2016 through January 2018 for between $7 and $21.
