A recall of ARB Recovery Kits has been initiated after it was found the kits don’t have the correct labels and instructions for use.
The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and affects ARB Essentials (RK11) and Premium (RK9) Recovery Kits.
The affected products were sold between the 1st of January 2010 and the 13th of January 2017.
The recall notice advises that the product labelling on the outer packaging is not compliant with the relevant mandatory safety standard.
Inner labels and instructions for use are compliant with the requirements of the mandatory standard.
What are the hazards?
Absence of warnings or inconsistent information in labelling could result in the strap being used in an unsafe manner or the incorrect recovery kit being purchased.
Consumers who have purchased an ARB RK9 or R11 for a vehicle which has a GVM outside the range of 2666kg - 4000kg should return the kit to the place of purchase for a refund or to exchange the snatch strap for an appropriately rated snatch strap.
