Action The firm sent out two customer notification letters; one to distributors and one to direct users. Letters were sent September 1, 2015 via USPS certified return receipt. Distributors were asked to obtain a list of their customers with contact information that have purchase or received the monode accessory or Intelect Shortwave device that included the monode as an accessory item. Once the list has been assembled the firm requests that it be forwarded to DJO Global Chattanooga Product Support by phone 877-733-4888, or by e-mail at monode.support@djoglobal.com. The firm's notification states that customers will be sent an upgraded monode accessory along with a pre-paid shipper for the return of the current used unit.
