Over the years there have been numerous alerts issued concerning the authenticity of Crosby products. These alerts have resulted from an alert that was generated by a company other than Crosby. The content and photographs of the subsequent alerts are the same as found in the original alert with new titles or sponsoring companies. Crosby provided responses to the original alert at the time, resulting in a retraction from OSHA. The responses, which are still valid today, provided clarification as to the marking of Crosby shackles and issues concerning the reduction in the working load limit.
