1. Ikaros hand-held rocket parachute flare manufactured by Nammo LIAB AB (trade name Hansson Pyrotech).

The batches affected are numbers 1111011, 1111012, 1111013, 1111014, 1112001 and 1112002, delivered between November 2011 and February 2012.



2. Sanho HRU, hydrostatic release units for liferafts and epirbs manufactured by Fenerci Denizcilik Egitim Dis. Tic. Ltd. Sti. The manufacturer has recalled specific batches (serial numbers C001 to C400) because triggering in the prescribed water depth is not guaranteed in all cases. Therefore, a security risk cannot be excluded.

The manufacturer has recalled specific batches of these products because full functionality is not guaranteed in all cases. Therefore, a security risk cannot be excluded.



Owners and operators should examine all such equipment to see if it is affected by these recalls. If any products are affected, replace them and contact BSH at marketsurveillance@bsh.de or on +49 (0)40 31907110.
