Apparently, it's the year of the product recall.
Now it's Nike, with their recall of 235,000 football helmet chin straps after receiving reports of head and facial injuries that resulted after the strap broke.
Not surprisingly, the chin strap was made in China. The strap was sold between 2006 and 2007.
You can see pictures of the strap at http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml08/08081.html
