Canon EOS Rebel recall announced for rubber handgrips credit: CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) announced a voluntary recall by Canon U.S.A. because some of the Canon EOS Rebel T4i digital cameras need to have the rubber handgrip replaced. Canon received reports of the black rubber grip turning white and one consumer developed a rash after handling the camera.

Around 68,200 of the Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR cameras were sold at Best Buy, B&H Photo, Amazon.com, and other retailers. The cameras were sold both at stores and online nationwide between June 2012 and July 2012 at a price range between $850 up to $1,200.

Canon suspects that a chemical used to make the rubber grip is causing a reaction and this could be the source for the color change. The chemical could cause irritation to the skin.

The recall involves only the EOS Rebel T4i digital SLR cameras that have a serial number with the second digit of either a “3” or a “4” and the sixth digit must be a “1.” The serial number consists of 12-digits and is found on the bottom of the camera.

Consumers who have the recalled cameras should stop using them and contact Canon U.S.A. to get free replacement rubber grips installed.

Canon can be called toll-free at (855) 902-3277 between 8 a.m. to midnight ET Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Saturday. More information is also available at www.usa.canon.com.
