What are the defects?

A problem with the injection moulding has led to some connectors being produced that do not meet design specification.

What are the hazards?

The connectors may pull apart under less-than-acceptable force when the unit is in the reclined position.

What should consumers do?

Invacare Australia has written to distributors requesting that they contact all affected users and arrange for replacement of the snap-on connectors.

Users and carers should check the serial number of their commode against the list of serial numbers listed above to see if it is part of the recall for product correction.

If you think you or someone you care for has an affected commode and you have not been contacted, contact the dealer who supplied your commode. If you have any difficulties contacting the dealer, call Invacare Australia on 1800 460 460 (8am-5pm Monday-Friday).

Do not use affected commodes unless there is no alternative available. Be alert to the potential for failure of the snap-on connectors.

If you have any questions or concerns about this issue, contact the dealer who supplied your commode or call 1800 460 460.
