MOD. 3023 AEGIS 3 - 2009 PRODUCTION (GREY & BLUE)
Recently inspectors of Health Canada informed us that the above mentioned product does not meet the Canadian requirements as prescribed by the Hazardous Products Act and the Hazardous Products (Tents) Regulations. Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program revealed that the materials used in this tent do not meet the requirements for tent flammability under Canadian law. The tent could catch fire if exposed to a flame or other ignition source such as a campfire spark, and cause severe burns to consumers. Consequently, we are recalling this model from the market.
The tents covered by this notice were sold as of January 2009. They may be identified by the colour of the rain fly, or as indicated by the product photo on the information card on the exterior of the carry bag. The 2009 production has a two colour rain fly of grey and blue. Tents from the 2010 production, available since March 2010 have a solid colour blue rain fly and are not currently subject to recall.
Consumers are advised to immediately cease use of the recalled product. Tents should be returned to the store where purchased, or directly to Yanes Canada for replacement. Should you have any questions please contact Yanes at 1-800-663-7770. Yanes Canada, 260 Guizot West, Montreal, QC H2P 1L5
