Reasons the product is recalled

The waist strap in the affected PFDs that secures the PFD to the wearer is only attached to the left hand side of the device. The waist strap is not attached to the right hand side of the device.

The hazards to consumers

If not secured correctly, the waist strap may slip from the position and cause the device to become ill-fitting on the wearer. This may affect the function of the affected PFDs so that depending on the circumstances, it may not keep the wearer in a safe floating position.

What consumers should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the Block PFD and contact Jarvis Walker via phone or email.

Consumers can call Jarvis Walker on 03 8787 6900, email recalls@jarviswalker.com.au or go to http://www.jarviswalker.com.au.
