Canon recalls EOS 650D grip causes skin rash

The rubber grip on the Canon EOS 650D DSLR camera presents a risk of allergic reaction, leading to the recall of 68,200 models.

The rubber grips on the cameras turning white because of the presence of zinc. This is one of most bizarre product recalls. The ‘zinc bis’, wasn’t used in the manufacturing, appeared as the result of chemical reaction between rubber and other materials. Exposure to high temperatures and high humidity may also have been a factor. The white discolouration could cause skin rashes for those with sensitive skin, according to Canon, who says the problem affects cameras sold between May 31 and June 27 this year.

Canon EOS D650 owners can use the support page and enter serial number in order to determine whether their camera is part of the recall.
