Bauer Hockey is launching a massive recall of about 100,000 kids’ hockey sticksover concerns about lead.
Thirteen models of sticks failed to meet the acceptable standard for lead content in the U.S. The allowable limit of lead is lower in the U.S. than Canada.
Company CEO Kevin Davis says the company is acting “very quickly” to deal with the issue to ensure it never happens again. They’ve issued a global stop sale order on the 13 models and is telling parents of kids with the sticks to call 1-888-734-0443.
Bauer will take the stick back and give a free, elite level stick.
