Voluntary Recall of SAFELINK EPIRBs Announced

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

January 25, 2016

Safety Alert- Kannad Marine has instigated a voluntary global recall program for its SAFELINK auto and manual emergency position indicating radio beacons (EPIRBs).
This is due to a potential issue where the SAFELINK EPIRB’s yellow body plastic may prematurely age when subjected to specific environmental conditions. This has the potential to impact on its long-term effectiveness in the field and could result  in the beacon not operating in an emergency situation.
Orolia Limited, Kannad Marine’s owner, has released a Recall Procedure which has further details, and includes a link for owners to follow and complete.
