 Click to enlarge image

Cabletech branded Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detectors, sold with a model number of URZ0407 and an EAN/barcode of 5901436752219.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detectors include the suspected failure of the device to be sufficiently sensitive with respect to the detection of Carbon Monoxide, a tasteless and odorless gas produced by incomplete combustion.

If this defect happens, people in the protected dwelling or other structure could fall seriously ill or die if Carbon Monoxide is present in the ambient air in sufficient quantities but yet not detected.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, the recalled Cabletech branded Gas and Carbon Monoxide Detector products do not comply with the requirements of the relevant European Standard EN 50291.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users and a withdrawal of the product from the market withdrawn from the European marketplace has been ordered.
