Gerbing Recalls Heated Jacket Liners

In colder weather, many people choose to buy heated jacket liners which can act as a heating system when out in the harsher temperatures. Yet the Consumer Product Safety Commission recently noted that Gerbings jacket liners had a tendency to overheat, and could burn a customer rather than keep them warm. The company will be recalling about 9,900 of their jacket liners which are listed under the name Gerbings and Harley-Davidson black nylon 12-volt heated jacket liners.

The Gerbings jacket liners only work when they are plugged into a car, motorcycle, or snowmobile, but they are helpful in keeping bikers and drivers warm if they are exposed to the elements. They are most commonly sold at Harley-Davidson dealerships though the jacket liners have also been sold at Eagle Leather as well as some sporting goods and retail stores. So far, the CPSC has received two reports of the jacket liners overheating and causing burns to consumers’ backs. The burns eventually turned into blisters.

The jacket liners can be repaired or replaced. It is illegal to sell or re-sell a recalled product, so chances are that most retail venues that carry these jacket liners have already pulled them off the shelves. If you have a Gerbings jacket liner that is described under model number JKLN and PO # 3796 or has one of the model numbers listed on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

The jacket liners were manufactured in China and imported by Gerbings of Stoneville, N.C. If you are injured by a Gerbings jacket liner, then the CPSC wants to receive your report. The CPSC is responsible for overseeing product safety and recalling any products that are not considered reliable and safe for consumers.
