On August 6, 2020, 3M Fall Protection announced an immediate stop use and product recall of all 3M™ DBI-SALA® Self-Rescue Descent Systems (part numbers 3320030, 3320031, and 3320037) manufactured before July 2020.
3M identified a potential cracking issue in the inner rope spool of these units that may occur (1) as a result of embrittlement over time of the plastic inner rope spool in all models; and (2) after repetitive descents of the training model (P/N 3320037). This issue could impact the ability of a user to descend in the event of a fall.
3M is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition, but users should remove these products from service immediately.
