BFA Marine Life Raft Recall

BFA Life Raft Recall
BFA marine (*) has identified some overpressure valves failures (**) on life rafts in use (***), which may lead to a complete deflation of the compartment when broken.

The following serial numbered rafts are involved in this recall:
- 5 digits - rafts with serial numbers from 10001 to 50180
- 12 digits - all rafts with serial numbers beginning with "XDC"

In the event both overpressure valves of the 2 independent compartments would happen to break, the life raft will not be functional anymore and be useless.

As a preventive measure, BFA marine urges its owners to bring back, without delay, their life raft to the nearest BFA approved service station, in order to check and potentially replace those overpressure valves.

The valve replacement will be free of charge. This is yet your responsibility to bring the life raft to the service station for inspection.

Please contact BFA marine if you need any help to select the adequate station.
In the event you may have condemned or sold the life raft, we would be grateful to inform BFA marine by return, and provide the buyer address.

This corrective action does not affect, neither the recommended servicing schedule, nor the warranty period.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and remain at your disposal for any enquiry you may have.

(*) a brand of Zodiac International company
(**) due to mis assembly operation
