Affected vehicle jacks do not comply with the labelling or instruction requirements in the mandatory standard for vehicle jacks, which is based on the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2693:2007 because the prescribed safety information and warnings were not included on either the packaging or the jack itself.
What are the hazards?
Jacks that do not comply with the mandatory standard pose a crushing hazard. This may result in serious injury or death.
