Under Armour recalls athletic cups, citing potential injury hazard

Under Armour, manufacturer of a line of athletic garments popular with SCA martial participants, has recalled over 200 thousand athletic cups because they may break under stress and cause injury.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which issued the recall notice, there have been five reports of injury so far due to the faulty cups. The products bear the Under Armour logo and were sold in retail stores and online from January 2006 through March 2009.

Customers should stop using the cups and contact Under Armour to receive a US$20 voucher that can be used at the company's web site or outlet stores.
