Atomic Skis and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced last week a voluntary recall of alpine ski bindings. The organizations are recalling about 125,000 units that were sold in the U.S. and 1 million that were sold abroad.

The bindings were sold nationwide from 1998 through 2005 for $150 – $350.
 
Reports show that the binding’s heel housing can crack, release unexpectedly and cause skiers to fall and potentially injure themselves. Atomic has received four reports of injured customers, with injuries ranging from a concussion to a knee injury.
