Rawlings pulls batting helmets for high lead levels

Rawlings Sporting Goods Co. is recalling about 2,300 junior batting helmets because surface paint on the products contains high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

The recall affects helmets with the model number CFHLJR sold in U.S. stores from July 2007 through November 2007 for about $40 US each.

The helmets were made in China.

No associated adverse health effects have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the helmets and contact the retailer for a replacement.
