Philips Lifeline recalls the non-breakaway neck cord version of Lifeline Personal Help Button pendants

This recall involves the non-breakaway neck cord versions of the Lifeline AutoAlert Personal Help Button, Classic Personal Help Button and the Slimline Personal Help Button.

Philips Lifeline personal help buttons with breakaway cords are not affected by this recall.

Philips Lifeline and Health Canada has received two reports of deaths that were possibly related to the affected products in Canada since 2009.

Over 100 000 units of the affected products were distributed in Canada prior to 2011.

Since 2011, Philips Lifeline has taken steps to recall the affected products and replace them with the new breakaway version of the neck-cord. However, some of the affected products may remain in the market.
