Canon Recalls 68,200 EOS Rebel T4i Cameras
Canon USA has recalled 68,200 EOS Rebel T4i DSLR cameras. Canon have previously stated that the front rubber grips of some units of the Rebel T4i may change color (turn white) after a short period of time. Now the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have asserted that a chemical used in the camera’s rubber grips can result in a reaction that changes the grips from black to white and poses a risk of skin irritation to the consumer. Canon USA has received one report of a consumer who developed a minor rash after contact with a surface where the camera had been. This recall involves EOS Rebel T4i digital SLR cameras with a 12-digit serial number that contain a second digit that is a “3” or “4” and a sixth digit that is a “1.” Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cameras and contact Canon U.S.A. to have replacement rubber grips installed free of charge.
