Motorcycle helmets that fail to comply with federal safety standards are now subject to a recall.

GMAX Helmet LLC is voluntarily recalling certain GM78 Fullface helmets, size medium. The affected helmets may not adequately protect a user in the event of a crash. As such, these helmets do not meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."

An individual's head may not be fully protected when wearing this helmet, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

GMAX believes that about 2,900 helmets are potentially defective.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact GMAX customer service at (208) 376-8400.
