Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Linear PERS Transmitters are components of Linear PERS or Personal Emergency Solutions Products and lets users push a button on the transmitter to summon assistance.

The Transmitter may be worn as a pendant on a lanyard around the user’s neck, on a band around the user’s wrist or as a belt clip (see photo above for detail).

This recall includes model numbers DXS-62A (sold with a black wristband and a gray pendant), DXS-62A1 (sold with an ivory plastic belt clip pendant) and DXS-64 (sold with a gray plastic pendant with a green circle in the center), all of which have batteries physically sealed into the products.

The manufactured date range of the recalled Transmitters ranges from June 2008 to April 2011 written as a date code. For example, the numbers in the date code “MD1105” represents “YYMM” format, meaning a manufacture date of “May 2011”. The date code, model number, Linear LLC and other information are found on the back of the transmitter.

According to the CPSC, the batteries used in the Transmitters can fail to emit a low battery warning leading the user to believe the Transmitters is functioning and not generate a warning.

The company has received one (1) report of a Transmitter that failed to operate. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately contact Linear to receive a new replacement Transmitters at no cost.
