In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Klim recalled its backcountry probes due to a severe injury or death risk.
The recalled probes can fail to operate when rescuers deploy the equipment, posing a risk of severe injury or death to a person buried under snow following an avalanche.
The recall was announced on February 16, 2023.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled probes, contact Klim by email at orders@KLIM.com and enter “A300 Probe Recall” in the subject line to receive a full refund. Klim will send consumers free shipping material and a pre-paid shipping label to return the probes.
KLIM is contacting all purchasers directly.
About 3,930 units are covered in the U.S. recall and about 400 in Canada.
