What are the defects?

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 are the hazards?

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 should consumers do?

Consumers should check their Back Float Buoy for the batch code F/F/T.
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 enquiries@vorgee.com or go to https://www.vorgee.com
