Gorilla Recalls Safety Harnesses Due to Fall Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Flushing, Mich.-based Gorilla Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of the Pullover Style Full Body Safety Harnesses model SP40300 that were included as an accessory with Gorilla 2007 ladder stands. The harnesses could fail during use, resulting in a hunter falling from the tree stand and suffering serious injuries or death.
Approximately 60,000 of the China-made harnesses--which bear batch code numbers 020507, 030507, or 040507--were sold at sporting goods retailers nationwide from April 2007 through October 2007 for between $80 and $300.
No injuries have been reported, but consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled safety harness and contact Gorilla for a free replacement harness at 877-685-7817 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
