3M Company, of St. Paul, Minn., has recalled about 7,500 vented hard hats. Hard hats sold online were marketed to protect against electric shock, but they do not provide this protection, posing a shock hazard to consumers. This recall involves 3M vented hard hats sold under the 3M™, 3M™ Tekk Protection™ and AOSafety™ brands. The hard hats are white, have eight, ¾-inch long ventilation slits along each side at the hat’s crown and have a ratchet adjustment for fit. “3M” or “AOSafety” is molded into the white plastic on the top of the brim. “XLR8 VENTED” is molded onto the bottom of the brim. “ANSI Z89.1” is printed on a sticker inside the hard hats. This recall only involves the 3M hard hats sold online.
The hats were sold online at Alliedelec.com, Amazon.com and HomeDepot.com from January 2008 through April 2016 for about $15. Consumers who purchased the hard hats online for protection against electrical shock should immediately stop using them and contact 3M for a free replacement hard hat. Contact 3M Company at 800-494-3552 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.3MSafety.com and click on “Safety Recall” for more information, or www.DIY.3M.com and click on “Safety Recall” for more information.
