For you Barryvox folks:
DEALER INFORMATION MAMMUT SPORTS GROUP AG NOV. 2, 2004
Preventative Recall of Mammut’s Most Recent Series of Barryvox Avalanche Transceivers
Tension cracks may appear in the red plastic casing of some of the Mammut Barryvox Opto 3000 avalanche transceivers produced for the winter 2004/05. Despite these cracks, the device functions properly under normal circumstances. However, it can not be completely ruled out that moisture may penetrate through these cracks und potentially impact the correct functioning of the device.
Only a small number of units from a specific case delivery is affected by this manufacturing error. To avoid any risk for the user, Mammut Sports Group AG has, nonetheless, decided to recall all the devices of the production series in question and remove them from the market as a precautionary step. Returned units will immediately be replaced with properly functioning new units.
Devices with the following serial numbers are being recalled:
M0080000 – M0088419
M0089616 – M0089800
M0090000 – M0090419
The units have come on the market in August 2004 and were produced for the winter of 2004/2005.
The devices of the season 2004/05 can be identified by the included interactive training CD: On the outside of the box, it says “Includes Bonus CD / Barryvox interactive Training“. The serial number can be found inside the battery compartment under the bar code.
All devices that were bought prior to August 2004, devices without the included bonus CD, thus with different serial numbers are working properly and are not subject to this recall.
