Heads up -

If you bought the red power armor helmet in the Nuka-Cola branding, which was sold separately at GameStop, you should know that it's been recalled because it's full of killer mold.

The silver version of the helmet that came with the collector's edition of the game is fine. It's just this red Gamestop one that is the problem.

Here's an article about it from Polygon. They have photos of the helmets if you want to compare it to your own:

Here's the product recall page at the US Consumer Safety Commission

And here's a quote from the Polygon article:

An announcement made on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission website warned that the inner liner of the helmet can contain dangerous levels of mold.

“Mold can be present on the fabric insert inside the helmet, posing a risk of respiratory or other infections in individuals with compromised immune systems, damaged lungs or an allergy to mold,” states the recall notice. Around 20,000 units were made.
