I just wanted to inform Crossfit that York barbell has issued a recall on the 7 foot split sleeve bars, this includes the International Mens Needle bearing bars, We will be sending all customers a letter with instructions on how to handle the return and exchange.

Thanks,

Scott

But not the women's Int'l needle bearing bar?

What's the issue in the recall?

Thanks for posting this.

I bought mine from Play it Again Sports. Is there an issue I should be aware of?

Is it safe to continue using until we get the return information?

Jeff,

I have several customers who have cleaned over 300 lots of times on those bars, I even have a few who dont want to give them back, I would train at caution on them. If you have a fax machine i can fax you the return info to speed it up. The womens bar is not being recalled. As far as the bar you got from Play it again, If its a York Int. Mens bar you need to call them on it.

Scott,
I bought a York Men's bar and a Women's bar from the local York distributor in Atlanta back in December 05. Should I contact him about the recall?

Scott,

I bought a 160kg set of Kraiburg bumpers with the York International Needle Bearing bar from you around the end of March. Looking forward to hearing about the recall. Thanks....

Yeah I would definatley call the Distributor, or call York direct on it, and ask for Lindsay Aquino, the number is 717-767-6481

Scott,

Any more info? Is it a repair or replacement, and are you handling the recall for your customers or is it direct through York?

Thanks,
Jamie
