Canon Recalls EOS Rebel T41 For Skin Allergy Potential

In case you haven't heard, Canon has recalled some of the EOS Rebel T4i  for the potential of skin allergies. Apparently the rubber grips have a chemical that can change the grips from black to white and cause skin irritations.  One person reported a rash after contact, and so they are recalling around 68,200 cameras that were sold at places like Best Buy, B&H Video,, among other retailers.

The ones being recalled were sold June and July 2012.

The camera was imported from Japan, and the 12-digit serial number which has a 6th digit that is a 1, can be found on the bottom of the T4i.

For more information contact Canon at (855) 902-3277 Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to midnight, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

That's a lot of cameras to be recalling in response to one alleged allergic reaction, but I suppose better safe than sorry.  The Canon camera is a great camera, I love both of mine.
