Camera Recalled For Allergic Reaction?

August 15, 2012

Interesting recall per the US Consumer Product Safety Commission release.  Canon (the camera people) recalls for repair some EOS Rebel T4i digital cameras.  The CPSC release heading states for “allergic reaction,” which got my attention.    Reading further down the release, the hazard is described as: “Hazard: 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.”  And: “Incidents/Injuries: Canon U.S.A., Inc. has received one report of a consumer who developed a minor rash after contact with a surface where the camera had been.” Now, I wouldn’t exactly call that an outbreak of allergic reactions.  Canon will install replacement rubber grips.  You should check the release to determine if your camera is one of the listed serial numbers.
