Mammut Sports Group, Inc., of Williston, Vt., has recalled its Mountain climbing rescue devices. The pull cord lock cam can fail, posing a risk of death and injury during a rescue. The recall involves Mammut’s RescYou crevasse rescue devices with batch numbers 12-12 and 03-13. The crevasse rescue devices are pulley systems used for ski mountaineering and mountain climbing to lift a skier or climber who has fallen into a crevasse. The rescue device consists of blue- and silver-finished mechanical ascenders, each using a cam that grabs a lifting rope, allowing the rope to slide only in one direction. The ascenders are connected by an orange rope threaded through pulleys. “MAMMUT RESCYOU” and the batch number are printed in white on the side of the blue ascender.
The devices were sold at Specialty outdoor stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at www.mammut.com from June 2013 through January 2014 for about $125. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled RescYou devices and contact Mammut for a free replacement crevasse rescue device. Contact Mammut at 800-451-5127 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, online at www.mammut.com and click on the “RescYou Recall” for more information, or email to email@example.com.
