STIHL has learned that these four types of gloves may not meet the legal limits for polycyclic-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). A high concentration of PAHs is considered harmful to health and wearing potentially contaminated gloves poses a risk to the user.
As a responsible manufacturer, STIHL has decided to recall the gloves and to refund the purchase price.
If you own any of these four types of gloves, please return these to your STIHL dealer in the interest of your own health. You will receive a refund of the purchase price even if you do not have your receipt.
The gloves should be returned to a STIHL Servicing Dealer (not one of our garden centre partners). You can find your nearest STIHL Servicing dealer here – just select the Servicing / Service filter option when you search.
A new version of the DYNAMIC Vent and ADVANCE Ergo MS gloves with an obvious design change will be available from STIHL in Spring 2022.
Thank you for your understanding with this precautionary measure.
