From Mustang Survival
In keeping with Mustang Survival’s commitment to the highest levels of product quality and safety, Mustang Survival is voluntarily recalling MD315X inflatable personal flotation devices (PFDs) manufactured in Canada between September 2014 and September 2015.
This recall is being issued for the reinforcement of a portion of the bladder assembly that may tear when the bladder lobes are flexed apart while fully inflated. A solution has been developed that corrects any affected products and prevents occurrence of this issue. The repair can only be performed at a Mustang Survival factory.
This recall notification is only for certain models. No other Mustang Survival products are affected as they utilize different bladder assemblies or have been originally produced with the required reinforcement.
“We have a detailed plan already in action to inform dealers and consumers of this recall and to collect, inspect and repair the affected model,” commented Jason Leggatt, VP of Commercial Products at Mustang Survival, “We place equal focus on the superior performance of our products and our commitment to our end users and their safe experience on the water. This voluntary recall will allow us to further ensure we’re delivering on both fronts.”
Distributors and consumers are urged to return affected PFDs by directly contacting Mustang Survival’s Customer Service department at 1-800-526-0532 between 7:30am and 4:30pm PST, Monday through Friday for specific shipping instructions.
Consumers with affected inflatable PFDs should contact Mustang Survival’s Customer Service Department directly. Consumers should not return product to their dealers as all product inspections and repairs are being handled by Mustang Survival.
Complete details on this recall, including how to determine if your PFDs are impacted, complete product return instructions, and frequently asked questions, are available at www.mustangsurvival.com/advisories.
