Backcountry Access Issues Recall for Avalanche Airbags Due to Risk of Injury

Approximately 8,200 Avalanche airbags have been recalled by Backcountry Access (BCA) because the trigger assembly can fail, resulting in the airbag not deploying and posing a risk of death or injury in the event of an avalanche.

The airbags are used for skiing, snowmobiling and mountain climbing to help keep the person wearing the airbag above the surface if an avalanche occurs. The airbags are yellow and are housed in a blue, red or black pack and has the model name, the word “Float” and the “bca” logo printed in black lettering. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled airbags and contact BCA for a free replacement trigger assembly.
