A Justice Dept. investigation last week led to an army recall of 44,000 combat helmets.
The army decided to retest helmets after learning about a legal probe into an Ohio-based military contractor called ArmorSource. Army officials said the tests showed the helmets would not protect a soldier against a rare but "worst case scenario" of being hit by multiple gun shots at a specific angle.
Army officials say they don't know of any injuries relates to the recalled helmets. They have been distributes to soldiers worldwide. Some have already been discovered in Afghanistan.
