WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Linear has issued a recall on approximately 48,000 personal emergency reporting system transmitters due to battery signal failure.
The Consumer Product and Safety Commission says the battery clips in the transmitters can corrode causing the transmitters to operate intermittently or not at all, without generating a warning.
Linear says they have received one report of a transmitter failing to operate. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers are advised to immediately contact Linear toll-free at (855) 554-2384 or online to receive a free replacement transmitter.
