Industrial Scientific Australia Pty Ltd—GasBadge Plus version 2.2 and earlier instruments
What are the defects?
The GasBadge Plus single-gas instrument may not properly indicate a low battery condition, resulting in a failure to "alarm" or "instrument shut down". This condition is exacerbated when the instrument is used in temperatures below room temperature.
What are the hazards?
The defect may cause the user to be exposed to noxious gases without being alerted, resulting in poisoning.
What should consumers do?
Customers should cease using the product and contact their local dealer to organise for a replacement unit. Industrial Scientific is also offering customers a free upgrade to GasBadge® Pro single-gas instruments.
Customers can contact Industrial Scientific on 03 9644 7777 (Australia and New Zealand) or email email@example.com
