Bauer recalls kids’ hockey sticks

Surprise, surprise, they’re made in China

by

Bauer Hockey has been forced by Health Canada to recall as many as 100,000 junior-sized sticks because they may expose children to hazardous levels of lead. The suspect sticks include 13 models made in a factory in China and sold since 2004 (for a complete list, hit the Hockey News link below). The recall follows an earlier warning about lead levels in junior and youth models of the Nike Bauer Supreme One50 composite. On the upside, young players now have an excuse for poor performance on the ice: they were weighed down by leaden sticks.
