USCG safety alert - lifejackets

We have received a Safety Alert from the USCG regarding Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs).  

Recently the U.S. Coast Guard has become aware of a potential problem when installing CO2 cylinders that have bayonet tips in inflatable personal flotation devices (PFDs or life jackets). If a cylinder is not properly installed, the lifejacket will not inflate with CO2. The problem may affect several thousand PFDs, but the Coast Guard is only aware of one incident to date.  

The full safety alert is available at the following link
