  • Acción
    BHM sent recall letters to Arjo''s direct accounts on 11/13/06 via first class mail, informing them that fastening the carabineer to the exterior of the closed ring portion of the reacher is contrary to the manufacturer''s instructions and is an unsafe practice. The letters informed the users that Health Canada had received notification of an incident involving a reacher marketed by a competitor, and had conducted an investigation into all similar reachers available on the Canadian market. Enclosed with the letter was a copy of the BHM Reacher User''s Guide as well as a warning sticker that visually describes the safe method for connecting the carabineer to the reacher. The accounts were requested to place the warning stickers on their reachers, review the enclosed User''s Guide in detail, and ensure that all personnel using the reacher receive refresher training on its proper use and have access to the supplied User''s Guide. Once these measures have been completed, the account was requested to complete the enclosed response form and return it to BHM by fax, e-mail or mail.
