What Do I Do If I Have This Gun Safe?

The recall is due to a potential malfunction with the biometric fingerprint scanner, which may allow unauthorized access to the safe's contents. If you own either of these models, please discontinue use of the biometric feature immediately by removing the batteries and contact the manufacturer (saconsumer6983@sedgwick.com) for a repair kit. Access can still be gained using the key.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that continuing to use the biometric feature could result in serious injury or death, fortunately, no injuries have been reported, but there have been over 75 reports of the safes being opened by unauthorized users.
