Primal Vantage Co., Inc., of Randolph, New Jersey, has recalled about 17,800 Ameristep Plastic Strap-On Tree Steps. The plastic portion of the steps can break, posing a fall hazard to the user. Primal Vantage has received six complaints of step breakage, including two reports of consumers being bruised and cut. The product is a plastic tree step that attaches to a tree via a nylon strap and a large metal buckle. It is used to climb a tree in order to hunt from an elevated position. Models 105 and 155 both have either a 10/08 or 12/08 date code, which is stamped on the plastic portion of the step.
The Tree Steps were sold from December 2008 through November 2009 at various outdoor and sporting goods retailers nationwide as a 3-step package in model 105 or as a single step in model 155. Consumers should stop using the tree steps immediately. They should contact Primal Vantage for details on how to obtain a full refund. Consumers are asked not to return the product to retail stores as refunds can only be provided by Primal Vantage. For additional information, contact Primal Vantage toll free at (866) 972-6168 or visit their website at www.treestandcustomerservice.com to print a return form or for further information on how to locate the date code on your tree step.
