June 10, 2020 — DICK’S Sporting Goods has recalled about 63,000 Field & Stream® safety ropes because they can break.
The problem is that the ropes can fail when used in freezing conditions, posing fall and injury hazards.
The company reported 1 incident of the safety rope failing during freezing weather, resulting in a concussion and a knee injury.
The recall involves Field & Stream Life Line, Linesman, and Safety Ropes. The ropes are used to reduce the risk of a fall while climbing.
The ropes are black with orange lines and were sold in a single or three pack. They have a carabiner that hooks onto the harness and a black and red label with the style number HEH01299, HEH01882Z, or HEH01530 printed in the bottom corner of the label.
They were sold at DICK’S Sporting Goods and Field & Stream stores nationwide and online from June 2017 through March 2020 for between $20 and $80.
They were also sold at Sportsman’s Warehouse stores nationwide from October 2019 through April 2020 for between $20 and $80.
