Jarvis Walker Pty Ltd — Adult Personal Flotation Device (PFD) Type 1

241300 JW Black PFD
241050 Platinum PFD

Identifying features


What are the defects?

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.

What are the hazards?

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 should consumers 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.
