WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Salomon USA has announced a voluntary recall of the Salomon “Quest Touring Pads” and Salomon “Quest Pro Pebax” and “Quest Pro” touring-style ski boots. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Description: This recall involves the Salomon “Quest Touring Pads” distributed as sole pads only, and Salomon “Quest Pro Pebax” and “Quest Pro” ski boots configured with the recalled sole pads.
