Thousands of emergency reporting system transmitters recalled due to defective battery

Capture

About 175, 000 linear “Personal Emergency Reporting System Transmitters” are being recalled because the batteries used in the transmitters can fail to emit a low battery warning.

And that means users think it’s working when it may not be.

The “Pers” transmitters can be worn around the neck, on the wrist, or as a belt clip.
