I saw this ad/recall in the latest USA Hockey magazine. Definitely a little misleading, in terms of getting a replacement cage vs. a replacement mask. I have a CCM/Heaton mask, but I think my buddies all have Itech.

If I read it correctly it's only the cat eye non certified cages that are being recalled.


IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE TO:

ALL ITECH CONSUMERS, RETAILERS, DISTRIBUTORS, SALES REPRESENTATIVES AND/OR EMPLOYEES

It has come to our attention that the ITECH 2100, ITECH 1100 and ITECH 8.0 hockey goalie masks and the ITECH RP607 and RP609 goalie mask replacement wires may, under certain conditions, break at or near a weld point, thus exposing the goalie to potential injury. These are non-certified models with a cat-eye design and were sold from 1999 until their discontinuation in 2003.

To be cautious, we are requesting that you immediately stop using or selling all ITECH 2100, ITECH 1100, ITECH 8.0 goalie masks and ITECH RP607 and RP609 replacement wires and return them to ITECH Hockey for free replacement by our current, updated models.

The ITECH 2100, ITECH 1100, and ITECH 8.0 non-certified, cat-eye goalie masks were offered in black or white. A label identifying the model (Profile 2100, Profile 1100 or Profile 8.0) and size (medium or large) is affixed to the rear crown of the helmet. In addition, the back of the helmet has a large red triangular warning label. The ITECH RP607 and RP609 non-certified, cat-eye replacement wires are black, white and chrome and include a unique side attachment concept -- they are attached to the helmet/mask by four screws and posts without the use of any additional clips.
