Rollerblade USA recalled 500 inline skating helmets due to an issue that could lead to head injuries.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the plastic shells can crack at the spot where the straps attach, possibly causing the helmet to shift on the wearer's head.

Rollerblade said the Maxxum helmets have the model number YJ-219 printed inside them. Click here for additional details.
