Salomon Canada announces a voluntary recall of the toe components of certain
ski bindings manufactured between July and October 2008.

TORONTO, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - Salomon Canada has decided to carry out a voluntary and precautionary recall of the toe pieces of below listed models of Salomon-branded ski bindings, Atomic-branded ski bindings and TECNOpro -branded ski bindings. The ski binding models subject to the recall were produced between July and October 2008 and sold in 2008/2009 season. These bindings were manufactured by Salomon and share the same toe piece construction.

This safety recall is effective immediately and these bindings must no longer be used until the toe component is replaced. In certain circumstances, the toe components of the below listed models may not fully secure the ski boot into the binding, possibly causing the binding to release inadvertently, posing a falling risk to the skier.

    
    The toe components of 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
    

SALOMON Canada is asking owners of the listed binding models to bring their bindings to an authorized Salomon, Atomic or INTERSPORT authorized ski dealer where an appropriate replacement of the affected toe components will be made free of charge.

"We decided to conduct this voluntary, precautionary recall because the safety of our customers and the quality of our products are Salomon top priorities," said Scott Lumsden, Hard Goods Manager for Salomon Canada.

To assist consumers in learning about this recall and in finding authorized ski dealers, we recommend that Salomon and Atomic consumers can get detailed information on the recall at www.salomon.com, www.atomicsnow.com, or by calling 1.800.361.3398 ext 3838 or sending an email to qualityinfo.canada@salomon-sports.com.
