Easton is recalling all EA30 stems produced and sold from 2007 through 2009.  While the stems passed industry standard tests for safety, Easton has identified a problem not uncovered by those tests which it claims may cause the stem to crack and fail.

This is a voluntary recall and is effective in both the U.S. and UK.  U.S. customers and dealers can find the appropriate PDF recall notice here, and the UK version is here.

You will find a production code on the side of the clamp next to the lower clamping screw (see pictures). The production code is comprised of the calendar month (denoted by a letter A – L) and the year (denoted by a single digit). Please see the chart below for a complete listing of the markings required to identify the affected stem.

Easton’s toll-free recall info number is 866-892-6059.
