A recall has been issued for polished aluminum rings by KONG Bonaiti of Italy — the rings were sourced elsewhere and distributed without individual testing. A quantity of these rings were mixed into KONG boxes without having been individually tested and laser marked. Furthermore, two users have experienced failure of these rings that could have led to injury. If you have such a ring (below left), stand-alone or spliced into a product, it is vitally important that you dispose of or submit for replacement immediately.
Delaying or avoiding immediate disposal or replacement could prove fatal to user.
According to SherrillTree, upon receipt of recalled ring(s), the sender will be furnished free of charge an individually tested and laser etched replacement. If a similar ring was purchased elsewhere, SherrillTree will replace it. If the ring supports a Sherrill-spliced rope product, that too will be replaced and shipped (within the US) at no additional charge. SherrillTree will compensate customers having bought direct from SherrillTree (with invoice on record) with $5 credit for their shipping expenses. SherrillTree apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this may present and will work quickly to return replacements.
