CPSC: Sierra Trading Post Recalls Joss Rock Climbing Cam for Fall Hazards

Cheyenne, WY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Sierra Trading Post has voluntarily recalled Joss rock climbing cam for fall hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on November 10, 2011.

The product recall was issued after it became apparent that the recalled cams can fail unexpectedly after being set, which poses a fall hazard to consumers.

“The Joss Cam is a mechanical device placed in the crack of a rock to support a climber’s weight. The Cam is operated by a trigger that retracts the aluminum lobes, allowing the device to be placed and secured in the crack of a rock. A cable is attached to the device with a heavy duty nylon sling attached to the end of the cable. Joss Cams come in eight sizes and each Cam is marked with the size (.5 to 4). The sling on the end features solid horizontal blocks of color (yellow, orange, purple, red, green and blue) indicating size. The ‘Cassin’ logo is also printed on a tag attached to the sling. The Sierra Trading Post item numbers associated with this recall are #69277 and #69278. These numbers can be found on the original packaging label or order invoice,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact the Sierra Trading Post to receive a full refund, including shipping.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Sierra Trading Post at (800) 713-4534 between 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or email the company at [email protected]
