The UK’s Office for Product Safety and Standards has announced a product recall for 11 models of lifejackets sold via online retailer Amazon over safety concerns.

Officials confirm that the affected products were not supplied with the required compliance documentation or markings to demonstrate that they have been adequately conformity assessed.

The models of lifejackets purchased by users via Amazon are those with the following brand names: NILIPEI, FLOATTOP, LIXONG, ROSOAMY, GRELANT, AJING, ZENING, STECTO, OMOUBOI, WELLPATH and Rrtizan.

The products do not meet the requirements of the PPE Regulation 2016/425 and as such, the Office for Product Safety and Standard recommend that owners stop using these products immediately. Owners are also recommended to contact the distributor to request redress.

For further information and product details, visit the GOV.UK website.
