The Coast Guard has issued a safety alert urging boaters to check their Mustang Survival PFDs.

Mustang Survival is voluntarily recalling all model number MD2010 and MD2012 inflatable PFDs sold in the United States this year. The recall is being issued for the inspection and repair of an inflator installation inconsistency that may prevent some units from fully inflating with carbon dioxide, although oral inflation functions normally.

Mustang Survival has developed a solution that corrects the affected products and prevents recurrence of the problem. The inspection and repair can only be performed at a Mustang Survival factory, and consumers are urged not to return products to their dealers.
