Salt Lake City, Utah (December 14, 2010) - Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd. has recently discovered that the intake tubing on certain 2010 AvaLung Packs may crack under extremely cold temperatures. We are working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, and are in the process of obtaining final approval for a recall.
The recall will pertain only to a limited manufacturing run of Black Diamond AvaLung packs produced in 2010, which can be identified by the following PO# and model combination:
spoke with both backcountry.com and BD today. I can return the pack for full refund from BC or send the avalung only to BD and they will check it out and send back if it's ok, or replace the avalung in late march when available. probably send it in to BD to see if it's effected then go from there.
