Action CIVCO issued a "FIELD SAFETY NOTIFICATION" letter dated 12/20/2010 beginning 12/30/2010, via FedEx or UPS to distributors and customers. The notification identifies the affected device, problem, and field safety corrective action. The letter states that if customers have more than one system purchased from different time periods that they should examine their systems and assess if there is any mismatch. The recalling firm will rework the system to correct the difference and send it back to the customer. To take advantage of this correction customers are advised to contact the recalling firm within thirty days of receiving the safety notification. The letter includes a response form to be completed and returned as per instructions, to indicate that the notice has been read and understood by all operators of the equipment. The letter to distributors requested that a copy of the notification letter be forward to all customers who have received this component.
