Rossignol and Dynastar have issued a recall of 2003/2004 model year snowboard bindings. The safety recall was conducted voluntarily in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Approximately 11,000 pairs of bindings are affected by the recall notice.

The reason for the recall is that the company has discovered the baseplate of the Taiwan-manufactured binding can break, resulting in loss of control and possible fall and injury to a snowboarder. To date, there have been reports of 23 broken bindings. No injuries have been reported.

This recall includes all 2003/2004 model year Rossignol-brand HC 500, Zena, Unit Pack, HC Rental, and Unit Rental snowboard bindings. Also included are the 2003/2004 model year Dynastar-brand Classic RL and Classic Pack snowboard bindings. The bindings were sold from October 2003 through December 2003.

It is important to note that the recall does not involve current products (2004/2005) or other models.

For more information, contact Rossignol Ski Company at 877-677-6092 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or Skis Dynastar at 800-992-3962 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
