Vorgee 4 Layer Back Float Buoy
A foam buoy with blue/green or pink/purple removable layers and a blue adjustable strap
The product is marked with the safety warning - WILL NOT PROTECT AGAINST DROWNING. USE ONLY UNDER CONSTANT SUPERVISION.
Batch codes F/F/T and F/E/U are affected by this recall. The batch code is located either on the top side of the product, underneath the strap, or on the back left hand corner of the packaging.
Why the product is recalled
The product may not comply with the mandatory standard 'Consumer Goods (Swimming and Flotation Aids) Safety Standard 2017'.
Buoys in the affected batch may have an unreliable clip. The central (secondary) safety wall lock may not hold, allowing the buckle to be released with a one-hand motion, or by pulling firmly on both straps.
What the hazards are to consumers
If the clip is released, the strap and buoy may loosen or separate from the swimmer. Sudden release of the clip could increase the risk of serious injury or death by drowning.
What consumers should do
Consumers should check their Back Float Buoy for the batch codes F/F/T and F/E/U.
Affected consumers should stop using the product and contact Vorgee to arrange for a reply-paid return envelope, and for instructions on obtaining a replacement or a refund.
For further information, consumers can contact Vorgee on 07 3841 8871 (Monday to Friday, 8am-4pm AEST), email at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to https://www.vorgee.com
