Plastic Tree Steps Recall

On May 19, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Primal Vantage Co. announced a safety recall of approximately 17,800 Ameristep Plastic Strap-On Tree Steps, after receiving six reports of the tree steps breaking and causing consumers to fall from trees while hunting.

The recall affects all Ameristep plastic tree steps that attach to trees with a nylon strap and a large metal buckle, including model numbers 105 and 155 with either a 10/08 or 12/08 date code stamped on the plastic piece. The steps are used while hunting to reach an elevated position and were sold from December 2008 through November 2009 at outdoor and sporting goods retailers nationwide.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled tree steps immediately and contact Primal Vantage at 866-972-6168 to obtain a full refund.
