What are the defects?

The ECX1024 slipper pads in the ECX AMP series of radio-controlled vehicles contain chrysotile asbestos. Asbestos fibres may be released from the slipper pad in the vehicle through friction and users may be exposed to asbestos fibres if the vehicle is disassembled for repair or maintenance.

What are the hazards?

If asbestos fibres are released into the air and breathed in, they can cause serious medical conditions, including asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles must not attempt to remove or replace the slipper pads or disassemble and maintain their vehicles.

Affected vehicles should be returned to their place of purchase. Retailers will send the vehicles to a centralised repair facility, where the slipper pads will be removed and replaced by a technician who is qualified to safely work with asbestos-containing materials. Vehicles will then be returned to their owners or to the place of purchase for returning to the owners. If your vehicle was bought second-hand, your place of purchase is no longer in business or you do not remember where you purchased the vehicle, you should contact OMP for further instructions.

For further information or to contact OMP about returning a vehicle, phone (08) 8186 0899 (Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm CST), complete the form available at https://www.omp.com.au/contact or email customerservice@omp.com.au
