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 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 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.
