SEAGO have released a revised warning about some of their lifejackets. We have become aware that some Seago 150 and 175 Newton Lifejackets including Junior Lifejackets may have a defect which could result in serious injury.

The lifejackets are marked with a manufacture date in roman numerals, for instance the last quarter of 2005 is shown IV/05. The quarters concerned are:

IV/05

I/06

II/06

III/06

IV/06

I/07

If you own a Seago 150 or 175 Newton Lifejackets including Junior Lifejackets then please check the manufacture date. The lifejackets in question were sold in chandlery shops, marine retail outlets & marine web sites throughout the United Kingdom.

If you have an affected lifejacket then PLEASE STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. Please remove the gas cylinder manually from the inflation system and return the lifejacket only to Seago Yachting Ltd, Mullany Business Park, Golden Cross, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN27 3RP , U.K. for testing. Any faulty jackets will be replaced. Jackets which are tested and found not to be faulty will be returned.

If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact Seago Yachting Ltd on +44 (0)1825 873632"
