AHLEN, Germany, July 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Kaldewei is recalling the bath handles “Rondostar-Multi-Griff”, “Studiostar-Multi-Griff” and “Saniluxstar-Multi-Griff” supplied between 1996 and 2002. This recall does not affect any of the other Kaldewei bath handles.
In very rare cases, incorrect assembly of the above bath handles may result in damage if greasy substances penetrate between the surface of the bath and the handle seal. This may damage the plastic in the handle and thus weaken the material over time. In extreme cases the handle may break under pressure.
The risk is greater if an appropriately qualified specialist did not fit the handles. The handles in question may be attached to various Kaldewei bath models.
Customers with a Kaldewei bath handle like the one illustrated with the sketched dimensions are asked to contact Kaldewei at the following service hotline number (standard telephone charges apply) in order to discuss the further course of action.
Service hotline: +49-2382-785-140 (standard telephone charges apply)
Customers will be able to obtain further information here and establish whether they have a product that is affected by the recall.
