Linear Expands Recall of Personal Emergency Reporting
System Transmitters Due to Battery Signal Failure
The batteries used in the transmitters can fail to emit a low battery warning, leading the user to believe the transmitter is functioning, and not generate a warning. The recall includes model numbers DXS-62A (black wristband and a gray pendant), DXS-62A1 (ivory plastic belt clip pendant) and DXS-64 (gray plastic pendant with a green circle in the center) which all have batteries that are sealed into the products. The manufactured date range of the recalled products is from June 2008 through April 2011 written as a date code. For example, the date code MD1105 represents YYMM format or a manufacture date of May 2011. The date code, model number, Linear LLC and other information are found on the back of the transmitter. The units retailed for about $45.
Consumers should immediately contact Linear for a free replacement. Contact the company toll-free at (855) 554-2384 from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., ET. Monday through Friday or online at www.linear-pers.com and click on Recalls for more information.
This recall effects about 175,000 units, in addition to 48,000 units previously recalled in December 2013.
Reebok-CCM Recalls Throat Collars Due to Laceration Hazard
Reebok is recalling the Reebok TCPRE Senior and Junior Goalie Throat Collars
Athletes who play hockey should know that these collars have been decertified by BNQ in Canada, due to the risk that a skate blade could penetrate the collar, posing a laceration hazard to the throat. The recalled Reebok TCPRE Senior (SR) and Junior (JR) Goalie Throat Collars are black with white trim and the word “Reebok” is embroidered at the base of the collar. They have the BNQ certification mark screen printed and the words “Ballistic Nylon Ballistique,” “TCPRE SR or JR” and sizing information on the right side of the collar base. Affected products have the model number K101SR TCPRE or K101JR TCPRE located on the label sewn on the inside of each throat collar pad and on the outside of a polybag in which the product may have been sold at retail stores. The products were sold from April 2012 through May 2014 for about $40 to $50.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled throat collars and contact their local hockey dealer to return the product for a full refund or replacement. Contact Reebok-CCM (800) 451-4600 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., ET., Monday through Friday, or online at www.reebokccm.com and click on Goalie Throat Collar Recall at the bottom of the page for more information.
