Collectible Fallout 76 Helmet Recall Issued Due to Mold Exposure

Share this:

If you’re one of the people who bought the special edition of Fallout 76 to get the real-life Power Armor helmet, you might want to read this. It seems the CPSC (United States Consumer Product Safety Commission) has issued a Fallout 76 helmet recall due to mold exposure!

Over on the CPSC’s site, it states that the “hazard” is as follows:

Mold can be present on the fabric insert inside the helmet, posing a risk of respiratory or other infections in individuals with compromised immune systems, damaged lungs or an allergy to mold.

The “remedy” recommended is for a refund, and their data states there are about 20,000 of these units out in the wild.

While the game seems to be improving after a rather disastrous launch, it still can’t catch a break — especially after considering the whole canvas bag controversy that happened around launch.
