Avalanche Transceiver Lawsuit | Get the Right Lawyer

Black Diamond Ltd. is recalling more than 66,000 PIEPS DSP Pro, DSP Pro Ice, and DSP Sport Avalanche Transceivers after the company received at least 65 reports of the transceiver modes switching unexpectedly while in use. “One death and one instance of a skier getting caught in an avalanche who suffered a broken arm and minor injuries were both reported in British Columbia,” according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

What’s the Problem?

This CPSC Recall [1] began on April 16, 2021, and affects:

  • PIEPS DSP Pro Avalanche Transceivers MODEL NO. PP1127710000ALL1
  • PIEPS DSP Pro Ice Avalanche Transceivers MODEL NO. PP1127700000ALL1
  • PIEPS DSP Sport Avalanche Transceivers MODEL NO. PP1128040000ALL1

“The transceiver can switch modes unexpectedly when not locked or installed in the harness,” CPSC said. “When this occurs, it will prevent the transceiver from transmitting a signal and can make it difficult to locate a skier in an avalanche, which can result in severe bodily harm or death.”

The recalled avalanche transceivers have a green/yellow, black/yellow, or clear/yellow exterior and come with a black neoprene carrying case. “PIEPS” is printed in black letters on the front of the unit with the model name DSP Pro, DSP Pro Ice, and DSP Sport.

Affected products were sold online and at Liberty Mountain, Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI), and other specialty outdoor stores nationwide from January 2013 through November 2020 for between $300 and $450.

Consumers who purchased a recalled avalanche transceiver should stop using it immediately and contact Black Diamond for a free replacement hardcase carrying system and user guide.
