Mustang Survival Recall


Mustang Survival has undergone a voluntary recall of it’s MD2010 and MD2012 inflatable PFDs. The units, only sold in the US in 2011, may be affected by inconsistencies with the inflator installation. Such an issue might hinder inflation of the unit. 

All dealers and consumers are urged to return only their MD2010 and MD2012 units in order to be inspected and/or repaired.

Please see the Mustang Survival official press release for more details:

In keeping with Mustang Survival’s commitment to the highest levels of product quality and safety, Mustang Survival is voluntarily recalling all model number MD2010 and MD2012 inflatable personal flotation devices (PFDs) sold in the United States during 2011.

This recall is being issued for the inspection and repair of an inflator installation inconsistency that may prevent some units from fully inflating. A solution has been developed that corrects any affected products and prevents re-occurrence of this issue. The inspection and repair can only be performed at a Mustang Survival factory. 

This recall notification is only for the MD2010 and MD2012 22LB buoyancy inflatable PFDs. No other Mustang Survival products are affected as they utilize different inflator assembly methods. 

“We have a detailed plan already in action to inform dealers and consumers of this recall and to collect, inspect and repair any model MD2010 and MD2012 inflatables that are affected,” commented Jason Leggatt, VP of Research, Development and Quality at Mustang Survival, “We will continue to work with the US Coast Guard and our dealers to implement the inspections and repairs for our customers.”

Distributors and consumers are urged to return their MD2010 and MD2012 inflatable PFDs by directly contacting Mustang Survival’s Customer Service department at 1-800-526-0532 between 7:30am and 4:30pm PST, Monday through Friday for specific shipping instructions.

Consumers with affected MD2010 and MD2012 inflatable PFDs should contact Mustang Survival’s Customer Service Department directly. Consumers should not return product to their dealers as all product inspections and repairs are being handled by Mustang Survival.
