Has your Petzl Scorpio via ferrata lanyard been inspected following the May 2011 recall procedure?
Please note this is a REMINDER not a new recall.
On May 24, 2011, Petzl launched a recall for inspection of all Scorpio lanyards manufactured up to serial number 11137****.
As of 1st December 2011, 70% of lanyards up to 11137** have not been submitted, Petzl wants to emphasise the importance of this recall for inspection.
