Source: Bose

(WTVG) - Speaker company Bose is issuing a voluntary recall of their FreeSpace DS40F in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers due to concerns the mounting components can break causing the speakers to dislodge and fall from its installed location, posing an injury hazard.

The affected speakers were manufactured before August 13, 2018.

The recall also includes all FreeSpace and EdgeMax in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers installed in commercial cooking environments.

The loudspeakers were sold in black and white colors with “Bose” engraved on the front of them.

These professional loudspeakers were sold by Bose through authorized Bose resellers to commercial purchasers, not at retail to consumers, although affected loudspeakers may have been installed in commercial spaces open to the public.

A full list of affected names and model numbers can be found HERE.

Bose has so far received nine reports of injuries related to the speakers.

If you have one of the affected products, the company says you should stop using the recalled loudspeakers immediately and contact Bose for instructions on receiving a free replacement or free safety cables. Bose is contacting all known purchasers directly.
