TULSA — Some items you may have in your home could pose the risk of serious injury, especially for your kids.

In this week’s “Problem Solvers Consumer Recall Roundup,” the Consumer Product and Safety Commission is issuing recalls on several household items.

The Sweet Protection Brand is recalling bicycle helmets due to risk of head injury.

The "Ripper Jr, Ripper MIPS Jr, and Ripper MIPS" helmets do not comply with the federal safety standard. Those who own one should stop using it immediately and return it to the store for a full refund or contact the brand.

As summer continues, many are turning to yard games for entertainment, but if you're in the business of lawn darts, this one is for you.

The CPSC is warning consumers to stop using and dispose of banned lawn dart sets. The commission said they pose a serious risk of skull punctures and other injuries, especially for children. If you have questions you can call (800) 638-2772.

Next, parents of infants and toddlers, check your brand of stroller.

If you own the Thule Sleek Stroller, the commission reports the handlebars can detach, potentially causing harm to your child. To get a replacement, contact the Thule Group to return the product and receive a free replacement stroller frame.

Lastly, Intertex is recalling blowers that could overheat and pose a fire hazard.

Consumers who own "B-Air, BlueDri, BlueDri Pro and Soleaire Blowers" should stop using the blower and contact Intertex for a repair.
