The letter identified the affected products, the reason for the recall, the hazard involved, and actions to be taken by the customer/user. Customers have been instructed to immediately stop using the system and contact a Philips service representative for an immediate inspection if one of the listed reasons apply. Customers were also instructed to follow the instructions in the system's Instructions For Use to avoid a collision or force on the detector. The firm's service will contact customers to arrange a time for Philips to conduct an inspection and to conduct the appropriate field safety correction. The letter should be placed in customers' Instructions For use. Notices to international consignees will be sent as soon as translation is complete. If customers need further information or support concerning this issue, they should contact their local Philips representative.
