Kicked In The Nuts
A major apparel company, Under Armour, has just recalled over 200,000 athletic cups that were manufactured in China.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that the cups were breaking upon impact, leading to serious harm in some cases.
The company has suffered a PR setback as a result, and it will feel some financial pain, as well.
Under Armour will issue $20 vouchers good for future purchases of Under Armour gear, a potential new cost item of $4 million. That’s an expensive way to buy added protection, folks. Ouch!
