The recall involves CHMACH-SR (Senior) Catchers helmets. No incidents have been reported, but the back plate can fail to protect the player. Rawlings is offering a free replacement back plate.
The brand “Rawlings” is printed on the side of the helmet and the “R” Rawlings logo is printed on the front-center of the helmets. Inside of the helmet is a sticker that reads “CHMACH-SR-RevA.”
The plastic helmets were sold in two-tone color combinations: black/white (UPC 083321545504), green/white (UPC 083321545511), navy/white (083321545528) and red/white (UPC 083321545566).
The helmets were sold at sporting goods stores nationwide and online at Rawlings.com and other online stores from July 2018 through September 2019 for about $200.
Consumers should stop using the recalled catcher’s helmets and contact Rawlings to receive a free replacement back plate for head sizes 7.5 and below or a full refund for head sizes above 7.5.
