This Safety Notice is issued to inform you that MSA recently received a report from CSA that samples of our Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses did not pass CSA side impact testing. These samples were tested as part of routine CSA oversight of the manufacturer.
MSA has investigated and determined that Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses shipped by MSA from October 17, 2017 through April 16, 2018 are affected. These affected glasses may not withstand a side impact force of the magnitude required for CSA certification. Please note that the Nuevo Wrap Safety Glass samples tested by CSA passed all other test requirements, including front impact.
MSA is advising all Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses customers to stop use, remove from service, render unusable, and dispose of any MSA Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses delivered by MSA from October 17, 2017 through April 20, 2018.
Identifying and Addressing Affected MSA Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses:
MSA Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses are sold as MSA part number 10106385. They are wide, wrapstyle safety glasses with gray lenses, black frames and gray rubber pads for the nose and along the bottom of the stems. The stem for the right ear has the MSA logo printed on it. Pictures are shown on the attached Safety Notice.
Because there is no date code on the glasses, MSA recommends that any Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses in your possession be considered as affected unless you have positive identification that the glasses were delivered by MSA prior to October 17, 2017. Stop use of the affected glasses, remove them from service, render them unusable, and dispose of them.
Replacing Affected MSA Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses:
We recognize that this is an inconvenience and in an effort to minimize any disruption, we pledge to take any replacement actions as expeditiously as possible. If you are in possession of affected Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses, you have the option to receive MSA Voyager safety glasses (Part Number 10065850) as a replacement free of charge.
Because the warning on the package for the Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses indicates that the glasses are to be replaced every two years, the maximum number of replacements will be limited to the number of Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses shipped by MSA to you between April 20, 2016 and April 20, 2018.
To receive your replacements, complete the MSA Nuevo Wrap Safety Glasses Replacement Form on page 3 of the attached Safety Notice and email it to Customer Service as indicated on the form. Upon receipt of the form, MSA will enter an order to provide you with replacements.
