Safety Alert – Product Recall
Mullion Compact 150N ISO 12402 Lifejacket
The Health and Safety Authority has been made aware of a product recall alert issued by Mullion Survival Technology Ltd., part of the SIOEN Industries Group. The product in question is the Compact 150N ISO 12402 Lifejacket
The company has stated that it has come to their attention that a problem may occur during the inflation of the above mentioned lifejacket. In order to avoid any potential safety issue, Mullion is recalling COMPACT lifejackets which have been sold since 1st December 2011 if they have a yellow valve in the oral tube (see picture on the left below). COMPACT lifejackets having a red valve in the oral tube are not affected and are not subject to this recall (see picture on the right below).
|Valve system inside the oral tube is YELLOW||Valve system inside the oral tube is RED|
They say this problem arose after a design change on the oral tube initiated by their supplier. Although this new design oral tube is a fully approved and certified product, they have noticed there may be a malfunction of the lifejacket upon inflation. The affected lifejackets are being recalled as a precaution for inspection and, where appropriate, repair or replacement.
Owners of lifejackets with the yellow valve in the oral tube as described above should:
NOT USE THEM.
RETURN THEM to the nearest Mullion Lifejacket Service Station or the Mullion factory in Ireland as per the listings and details on their website at www.mullion-pfd.com under the heading Compact Lifejacket Recall, or click on the following link:http://www.mullion-pfd.com/compact-life-jacket-recall-programme
