The recoil retardation effect in the K¯d scattering length is studied. Using the nonrelativistic effective field theory approach, it is demonstrated that a systematic perturbative expansion of the recoil corrections in the parameter ξ=MK/mN is possible in spite of the fact that K-d scattering at low energies is inherently nonperturbative due to the large values of the K¯N scattering lengths. The first-order correction to the K¯d scattering length due to single insertion of the retardation term in the multiple-scattering series is calculated. The recoil effect turns out to be reasonably small even at the physical value of MK/mN approx 0.5. In the talk I will present these results as well as our more recent estimation of higher order corrections and the possibility to resum the recoil corrections to all orders.
