Recall-a-thon ‘06 Continues: Olympus’ Turn
In March, Olympus recalled several camera models due to a problem with flash circuits that could result in overheating and burns. On Tuesday, the company added two more models to that voluntary recall. The Infinity Zoom 76 and the Promaster Infinity Twin have been added to a recall that already includes the Infinity Twin, AF-1 Twin, Infinity Zoom 200 series, AZ 200 series, and Quantary Infinity Zoom 222 Olympus-brand 35mm film cameras.
The cameras in question were sold between January 1989 and December 1995, and total around 24,000 units, bringing the total recall to 1.2 million cameras. 21 reports of flash circuitry overheating have been received so far, though no injuries have been reported.
Concerned consumers should contact Olympus at (800) 480-1247 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit www.olympusamerica.com
