Broomfield, CO — About 15,500 Photon carabiners, Photon and Mach Express quickdraws were voluntarily recalled for serious risk of injury or even death. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and CAMP USA Inc., announced the product recall on April 21, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the carabiner gate may open under a heavy load, which poses a serious risk of injury or death if the climber falls.

“The Photon model carabiners are used by climbers as connectors and are sold individually or as components of the Photon Express and Mach Express quickdraw used as extenders to anchor a climber. The carabiners were sold in a variety of colors including green, yellow, silver and brown. The quickdraws use a white or black fabric strap with green, yellow or gray stitching and Photon carabiners attached at each end,” reported the CPSC press release.

Consumers are advised to contact CAMP USA to return the recalled items for a full refund.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact CAMP USA Inc. toll-free at (877) 421-2267 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.camp-usa.com.
