SIMMS FISHING PRODUCTS RECALLS WADING STAFFS
Staffs sold from March 1, 2010 through June 17, 2010
BOZEMAN, Mont. (For immediate release) – Simms Fishing Products is voluntarily recalling certain models of Simms 2010 Wading Staffs. The affected wading staffs have a detent button that may not engage or can become dislodged making the staff inoperable.
These staffs, offered in two sizes (52″ & 56″), are sterling silver in color and are identified by Simms item numbers AWS101152 or AWS101156 (UPC numbers 94264-10102 or 94264-10103). Affected Wading Staffs are visibly identifiable by a silver cable connector (see photo).
The staffs were sold through authorized Simms dealers from March 1, 2010 through June 17, 2010. About 2,000 affected products were sent to retailers. Simms estimates about 1,000 have been purchased by consumers.
The issue was identified through company testing and customer use of the wading staff. No injuries have been reported in conjunction with the defective wading staffs.
Wading Staffs meeting the above criteria should be returned for replacement or refund by contacting Simms directly at 877-789-6555, by contacting an Authorized Simms Retailer or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
