SCARPA North America toll-free at (866) 998-2895 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or online at www.scarpa.com and click on the tab marked "F1 EVO RECALL" for more information.
This recall involves the men's and women's SCARPA F1 EVO ski boots with the Tronic system component. The Tronic system locks the boot into the ski binding. The boots were sold in royal blue for men and aqua blue for women with "SCARPA" written in white letters on the lower outer side of the boot. The model name "F1 EVO" is printed on the upper right outside ankle cuff of the boots.
Consumers should immediately stop using the boots and contact SCARPA North America for a full refund.
The firm has received two reports of torn knee ligament injuries following falls, when the boots failed to release from the binding.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
