Salomon Canada has announced a voluntary recall of the toe pieces on some ski bindings produced last year that have been on the market since last winter's ski season.
The company says the recall applies to certain models of Salomon-branded ski bindings, Atomic-branded ski bindings and TECNOpro-branded bindings.
In certain circumstances, the toe components of certain models may not fully secure the ski boot into the binding, possibly causing the binding to release inadvertently.
The company says owners should take the bindings to an authorized ski dealer to have the affected toe components replaced free.
The bindings were made between July and October 2008. They were all manufactured by Salomon and share the same toe piece construction, the company said in a statement.
The company is advising customers to stop using the bindings immediately until the component is replaced.
The toe components of the following models are affected:
· Salomon branded models: LZ 7, LZ 8, LZ 9, LZ 7 SR, LZ 8 SR, LZ 8 SC, JLZ 9.
· Atomic branded models: eVOX 2.8, eVOX 2.8+, eVOX2.8++ and FFG8.
· TECNOpro branded models: TL 70, TL 80, TL 70 SP, TL 80 SP, TL 70 SR.
