Mustang Survival issues recall on two PFD models

Mustang Survival said it is voluntarily recalling two selected models of inflatable personal flotation devices made in Canada.
The bladder of the MD315 and MD318 series life jackets affected by the Mustang recall is fluorescent green and made in Canada.

The bladder of the MD315 and MD318 series life jackets affected by the Mustang recall is fluorescent green and made in Canada.

Mustang Survival said it is voluntarily recalling two selected models of inflatable personal flotation devices made in Canada between September 2014 and September 2015.

The recall is being issued for the reinforcement of a portion of the bladder assembly that may tear when the bladder lobes are flexed apart while fully inflated.

Although a solution has been developed that corrects affected products and prevents occurrence of this issue, the repair can only be performed at a Mustang Survival factory.

BoatUS is urging boaters to check their life jacket inventory and see the identification guide to quickly determine whether the life jacket is subject to the recall.

The recall notification is only for models identified by model numbers that begin with either MD315 (sold in Canada) or MD318 (sold in the United States).

“No other Mustang Survival products are affected, as they utilize different bladder assemblies or have been originally produced with the required reinforcement,” Mustang said in a statement.
