Important Recall Notice: Mustang Survival Safety Gear
Mustang Survival Safety Gear – MD315X Inflatable PRDs manufactured in Canada between September 2014 and September 2015.
The Safariland Group, makers of the Mustang Survival safety gear, has issued a recall for certain models of the MD315X Inflatable PFDs manufactured in Canada. After extensive testing, the company has found that the models in question may be missing reinforcement fabric on its bladder, which may cause the PFD to tear when flexing its lobes apart when fully inflated.
Jason Legatt, VP of Commercial Products at Mustang Survival, says “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.”
Those with affected models are encouraged to contact the Mustang Survival’s customer service department at 1-800-526-0532, where they will be provided shipping instructions to arrange inspection and (if needed) repair.
Consumers should not return their products to their original dealers/retailers, all product inspections and repairs handled at Mustang Survival which is based out of Burnaby, B.C.
