Smithfield, RI — Honeywell Safety Products has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 82,500 hard hats, stating that the equipment may provide insufficient protection from impact and put wearers at risk of head injury.

According to the April 24 recall notice, Fibre Metal E2 Cap and North Peak A79 models are affected. The Fibre Metal E2 hard hats have manufacture dates of April 2016, May 2016, December 2017 or January 2018. The affected North Peak A79 equipment has a No. 4 mold identification and was manufactured between April 2016 and January 2018. Manufacture dates and mold numbers can be found on the underside of the hat brim.

Affected customers should stop using the hard hats immediately and contact the manufacturer by phone at (888) 212-6903 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern, Monday through Friday, to obtain a product credit or voucher equal to the price of the recalled helmet.
