Jarvis Walker Pty Ltd—Platinum Excalibur Children's Life Vest (X-SM and SM)

Identifying features

Models 241000 and 241005 (batch code 1201) (PFD)

What are the defects?

The stitching of the grab strap attached to the back of the collar of the life vest may be inadaquate (batch 1201 only). The grab strap was added as an additional feature of the vest and it is not required for flotation.

What are the hazards?

If the stitching of the grab strap tears and the strap separates from the collar of the vest, the wearer may fall back into the water. (Note that the flotation of the vest is unaffected, however.)

What should consumers do?

Return the vest to the place of purchase for a full refund. If customers have any questions about the recall, they can contact Jarvis Walker on (08) 8244 8790.
