Attenzione richiamo per il sistema di recupero da crepaccio RescYou.
“Precautionary recall of crevasse rescue device: Mammut RescYou
During a regular internal quality check, Mammut has identified that some products in batches 12/12 & 03/13 of the “RescYou” crevasse rescue device do not meet the functional requirements. In order to prevent any risk to users, Mammut has decided to proceed with the market recall of the affected production batches 12/12 & 03/13 of the “RescYou” product.
With “RescYou”, Mammut has, since 2013, been selling an innovative item of equipment that simplifies the rescue of any team member who falls into a crevasse (for example, during a glacier expedition). Thanks to a six-fold pulley, the weight of the fallen person can be lifted with little physical effort.
A defect was discovered in two batches of these products. The pulley’s orange reverse lock does not lock sufficiently and the rope can slip back to its starting position. This means: it is no longer possible to rescue a person from a crevasse or to climb out oneself in the event of a fall.
Mammut is asking all customers who possess a “RescYou” (item no. 2210-01160) from production batch 12/12 or 03/13 (available for purchase in-store since 10th June 2013) to stop using the product immediately and return the product in question.”
