No recall but AustriAlpin’s sets with a rope break as shown below must not be used any further because of obsolescence (produced before 2007). The other manufacturers are testing their via ferrata sets.

The latest recalls are not congruent with the recalls of via ferrata sets with elastic lanyards in 2012 (Equipment Alerts).
