Reason for Recall: The safety of our products is our top concern at Honeywell. We have recently learned of a quality issue affecting certain lot numbers of our Fibre Metal E2 Cap and North Peak A79 hard hats that may render them unable to provide the impact protection for which they were designed and certified.
Risk to Health: Although we are not aware of any safety incidents involving the affected hard hats, in cooperation with Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, we are initiating a voluntary product recall of the items involved. The hard hats included in the recall may not provide the level of protection for which they were designed and certified in the case of impact.
Requested Action: Identify the affected lots and remove these items from usage by following the instructions on the links below.

The affected lots of Fibre Metal E2 Cap were produced in April 2016 (Yellow E2), May 2016 (Gray and Black E2), December 2017 (White E2) and January 2018 (Blue). The lots of North Peak A79 were from mold #4 and shipped from our distribution center from April 2016 through January 2018.
LOCATING LOT NUMBERS : The below images highlight the most common locations for lot number location. Actual location may vary.
There are two ways to identify affected product :
1. If the carton is available, compare lot number on the label on the carton to the list provided on the attached.
2. If the hard hats have already been removed from the case, the Lot Number will no longer be identifiable. In that case, look for the manufacturer’s date on the underside of the brim.
a. The lots in question for Fibre Metal E2 Cap were produced in May 2016 and between December 2017 and January 2018, therefore, if the Lot Number is not available, return Fibre Metal E2 Caps with a manufacturer’s date of either December 2017 or January 2018.
b. The lots in question for North Peak A79 were produced from one of our molds (mold #4) from the period April 2016 through January 2018. Therefore, if the Lot Number is not available, return North Peak A79 hard hats with a manufacturer's date between April 2016 and January 2018 and have the mold identification number of "4".
