Salewa is conducting a voluntary recall of the product Alp Trainer 2 Mid GTX (Item Code men’s version: 61382 – Item Code women’s version: 61383).
Why are they doing this? If these boots are laced loosely or untied, unlaced at the ankle support section, not laced through the eyelet, or lace hooks are left unlaced, etc., it is unlikely, but possible that the lace hook on the inside of one boot can catch on a loose cable on the inside of the other boot, posing a tripping and/or fall hazard and risk of injury to the consumer.
WHAT BOOTS ARE SUBJECT TO RECALL?
Recalled ALP TRAINER 2 Boots can be identified by the production date on the inside of the tongue label of the boot. The production date on the label starts with an “FS”. The numbers on the label indicate year and month of production as follows: the first number is the last number of the year of production and the second number designates the month of production. For example, FS 2-01 designates a production date of January 2022.
All AT2 Boots with the following production dates are subject to recall: FS 0-XX, FS 1-xx, FS 2-01, FS 2-02, FS 2-03, and FS 2-04 (only for Men’s Alp Trainer 2 Mid GTX Boots 61382 in Black/Black 0971). Production dates starting with FS 2-04 (apart the one cited before – 61382-0971) and later (e.g., FS 2-05, FS 2-06, etc.) are not subject to the recall (the “Fall 22 AT2 Boot").
Men’s Alp Trainer 2 Mid GTX Boots, Item Code 61382, were manufactured in three color options: Black/Black (0971), Raw green/Pale frog (5322), and Walnut/Fluo orange (7512). The recalled Women’s Alp Trainer 2 Mid GTX Boots, Item Code 61383, were manufactured in two color options: Black/Black (0971), and Duck green/Rhododendron (5085).
The Fall 22 AT2 Boots can be distinguished from the Recalled AT2 Boots by examining the sides of the boots: the Fall 22 AT2 Boots have a covered steel cable and different lacing point (15mm or 1.5 cm closer to the tongue) than the Recalled AT2 Boots.
