WASHINGTON — Under Armour Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of more than 200,000 athletic cups as they can break when hit, posing a risk of serious injury to the wearer.

Baltimore-based Under Armour said it has received five reports of cups breaking and one report of injury, which involved cuts and bruising.

Under Armour and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall together, said consumers should stop using recalled products. The products can be returned to Under Armour for a $20 voucher.

The recall involves all athletic cups that have the Under Armour logo, including adult, teen and youth sizes. The cups were sold individually and as part of a set with certain shorts at sporting good stores nationwide from January 2006 through March 2009.
