STX is recalling 4,000 units of the Shield Throat Guard which is a piece of equipment worn by goalies. The Shield Throat Protector can crack or break when struck by a lacrosse ball, posing a laceration hazard to the user. Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

STX has received one report of the Shield throat protector breaking, resulting in reported bruising and lacerations to the user’s neck. The throat protector is black and has the letters “STX” engraved on the outer surface of the protector. It has straps attached by silver screws on each side and bottom of the protector to attach it to a lacrosse goalie’s helmet below the helmet’s chin guard.


Consumers should stop using the Shield throat protector and contact STX and return the product for a full refund. Or go to your local specialty sporting goods stores such as Athlete’s Connection, Commonwealth Lacrosse, Lacrosse Unlimited, Play It Again Sports, Sport Stop USA and Universal Lacrosse . You can also go online at www.LAX.com from September 2013 through February 2014 for a refund around $20 to $25.  

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
