Approximately 3,000 ORTOVOX S1+ Avalanche Transceiver units have been recalled by Deuter USA over their potential failure to send signal during an emergency situation, even if the product seems to be working, according to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 2.
The defective transceivers were manufactured between 2010 and 2014. The two-digit manufacturing year and a roman numeral indicating the quarter of the year is printed on the inside of the battery door, which can be found at the back of the transceiver. The affected products were sold at different ski retail stores and outdoor specialty shops across the country beginning July 2010 through April 2015.
Defective transceivers should be returned to ORTOVOX for a free repair.
