Safety Device Recalled Over Safety Concern

As a result of a transport safety investigation, a life jacket device available across the country is being recalled.

The product, the Jarvis Walker Adult PFD Type 1, sold as a pair, was sold under three separate codes and two brands:

Single unit code 241050 Platinum brand, sold from July 2011 to December 2015

Single unit code 56000 JW brand, sold from January 2012 to December 2015

Twin pack code 241300 JW brand, sold from August 2014 to October 2017

Kmart K/C 42076063

Regardless of the brand, all have the single unit marking of ‘PFD TYPE 1’

The waist strap that secures the device to the wearer is not attached to the right-hand side.

Those who bought the products at Kmart are advised to stop using them and to return to Kmart for a full refund, with or without a receipt or original packaging.


Consumers can also contact Jarvis Walker by phoning (03) 8787 6900 or email
