Canon has announced a recall of more than 68,000 EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR Cameras. 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.
This recall involves Canon EOS Rebel T4i digital SLR cameras with a 12-digit serial number that contain a second digit that is a '3' or '4' and a sixth digit that is a '1.' Serial numbers are printed on the bottom of the camera. The Canon logo and the model name are printed on the front of the camera.
The recalled cameras were sold at B&H Photo, Best Buy and various other camera and mass merchandise stores nationwide, as well as on Amazon.com and other online retailers between June 2012 and July 2012.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cameras and contact Canon U.S.A. to have replacement rubber grips installed free of charge.
