Submitted By cmetzger on Wednesday, July 4, 2007
TORONTO, ON – June 25, 2007 – CSA International announces a consumer Product Alert for “WJD Pro” Goaltender Helmets manufactured and distributed by Jaguar Sports of Caledonia, Ontario and WJD Pro Inc. The affected helmets bear counterfeit (unauthorized) reproductions of a registered trademark belonging to CSA International or they are manufactured with unauthorized construction changes. The affected helmet constructions have not been certified by CSA International to the applicable standards.

No incidents or injuries have been reported to date related to the affected goaltender helmets.

Counterfeit “WJD Pro” Goaltender Helmets
The counterfeit “WJD Pro” goaltender helmets bear a counterfeit CSA Certified Hockey Helmet Label with the serial number 17619 and can be identified by its elastic strapping with the letters “WJD” on it. 

The affected counterfeit goaltender helmets do not meet the applicable standards for impact protection. The use of these goaltender helmets could result in serious injury such as concussion or other serious head trauma and may not protect a wearer in the event of a fall to the ice, collision with another player or impact from a puck or hockey stick. 

WJD Pro Goaltender Helmets of Unauthorized Construction
The affected “WJD Pro” goaltender helmets of unauthorized construction bear a CSA Certified Hockey Helmet Label with serial numbers 17619 or 17620. The materials used are not consistent with those originally certified and the wire cage may not be of the originally certified configuration. Those goaltender helmets with a “Cats Eye” configuration wire cage do not meet the penetration test requirements of the standard and may result in serious eye injury or blindness.

Any goaltender helmet with a CSA Certified Hockey Helmet Label with serial numbers 17619 or 17620 may not meet the standard’s requirements and the use of such helmets could result in serious injury to the user. 

These goaltender helmets were primarily sold in specialty sporting goods stores across Canada for about $200.00 to $350.00.

Owners of the “WJD Pro” goaltender helmets are advised to stop using them immediately. 

The goaltender helmets were produced by Jaguar Sports, 9570 Haldibrook Rd., Caledonia, ON, N3W 2G9, Tel: 905-481-2994 or WJD Pro Inc. most recently located at 1257 Treeland Street, Burlington, ON, L7R 3T5, Tel: 905-407-9532.
