got this in an email today from my patrol director;

FYI. This was also in Sunday's Hartford Courant, Consumer section. Ski Safely:

Recall Notice: Ski Bindings
January 4, 2009

About 125,000 Alpine Ski Bindings have been recalled by the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission.
The ski bindings, manufactured by Atomic Skis GmbH, of Austria, can crack
and release unexpectedly. Four reports of injuries have been received.
The recall includes the following bindings: Race 310, Race 412, RaceRace
310, RaceRace 412, Xentrix 310, Xentrix 311, Xentrix 412, C310, C311, C412,

Centro 310, Centro 412, and Dynamic ADX 312, RD10 and X412. Only those
bindings manufactured from 1998 through 2002 are in the recall. The year

The bindings were sold through authorized Atomic USA ski dealers nationwide
from 1998 through 2005 for $150 to $350.

Have had to send in a couple heel pieces for this and I have been amazed by how quickly Atomic has taken care of this issue. The parts were all shipped next day to the shop.

Pay no mind, it was apparently easy to miss.
