EASTON EA 30 STEM VOLUNTARY RECALL
Easton has identified a potential safety issue involving the four bolt Easton EA 30 stem. The stem in question can crack and eventually break during use, therefore Easton is voluntarily recalling all of the 2007, 2008 and 2009 EA 30 stems affected.
Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles equipped with the recalled stems and contact either their authorized Easton dealer or Easton directly to receive a free replacement. Recalled stems will be replaced with a new Easton stem. All labor charges associated with this recall will be covered by Easton.
Although the stem in question has passed all of the industry tests, this particular issue was not uncovered
during those tests. As a result of these findings and Easton’s commitment to produce the safest product
possible, we are recalling the affected stems and replacing them with new stems which are subject to even
more stringent quality controls.
The EA 30 stems in question have been sold as individually packaged pieces and equipped on bicycle brands.
This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
