DICK’S Sporting Goods is recalling about 63,000 field & stream safety ropes due to fall and injury hazards.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the ropes can fail when used in freezing conditions, posing fall and injury hazards.
This recall involves Field & Stream Life Line, Linesman and Safety Ropes and are used to reduce the risk of a fall while climbing. The ropes are black with orange lines and were sold in a single or three pack. They have a carabineer that hooks onto the harness and a black and red label with the style number HEH01299, HEH01882Z, or HEH01530 printed in the bottom corner of the label.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ropes and return them to any DICK’s Sporting Goods or Field & Stream store if purchased at those stores or at Sportsman’s Warehouse store if purchased there. Consumers with a receipt will receive a full refund and consumers without a receipt will receive a store credit of the purchase price.
The company has received one report of the safety rope failing when used during freezing weather, resulting in a concussion and knee injury.
