STIHL Australia has been informed that during routine quality inspections, it was determined that the STIHL DYNAMIC Vent gloves, STIHL ADVANCE Ergo MS gloves, STIHL work CARVER Kids gloves and STIHL work kids gloves may contain levels of polycyclic-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) that may be harmful to health under some circumstances.
A high concentration of PAHs is considered potentially harmful to a user’s health and it cannot be excluded that wearing these gloves poses a risk to the user.
As a responsible manufacturer, STIHL has decided to recall theses gloves and to refund the purchase price.
If you own the above mentioned gloves, please return them to your STIHL dealer. You will receive a refund of the purchase price even without presenting the purchase receipt.
We kindly ask for your understanding of this precautionary measure and apologies for the inconvenience. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact STIHL.
