To determine if you are impacted by this recall please check for the following: 1) Any inflatable product with multiple white sewn on safety labels on the Back is OK and is NOT affected by this recall. 2) If your inflatable does not have white sewn on safety labels, please check for model number MD2010 or MD2012 on the back of the PFD, then refer to #3. 3) MD2010/MD2012 models with an "MIT" (Membrane Inflatable Technology) stamp (in black or color) above the CO2 cylinder is OK. But any MD2010/MD2012 missing the "MIT" stamp should be returned to Mustang.
