Xm liferaft recall

I don't know if this is in the relevant section, but I've posted in the commercial section because this is where the majority of people will be using life rafts.

I've just been sent this by Marine Store:


Navimo UK - Also known as Plastimo XM - is recalling a batch of XM liferafts that showed the potential for developing micro leaks which might affect the overall buoyancy of the product. They will be exchanged free of charge with a new European model.

After a prolonged time in the water the occupants of the liferaft might have to use the pump supplied in the raft to top it up. The problem is confined to a limited batch of XM liferafts manufactured in the Far East carrying part numbers 53871 to 53876. This batch of rafts was manufactured from early 2006 onwards and were probably sold after June 2006.

'While we've had no reports of any incidents with this batch of rafts, we take this matter extremely seriously,' said Paul White, Navimo UK sales manager. 'We just don't feel comfortable offering a safety product that - no matter how small the possibility - might put anyone at risk. 'So we want to get that entire batch of rafts back and replace them - free of charge - by the same type of product manufactured in our European factories.'

Navimo says any person with a liferaft from the affected batch should contact Carl Gilbert-Wood on 01489 778853, or email to arrange for shipment back to Navimo.
