Emergency alert device recalled because it could fail
GreatCall is voluntarily recalling more than 44,000 Lively Mobile Plus emergency alert devices. The company says the device could fail when pushed by the consumer in an emergency.
This recall involves Lively Mobile Plus model GCR4 emergency alert devices manufactured between January and April 2019.

The model number GCR4 is printed on the back and the date code 19.01 or 19.03 is printed on the bar code label of the device.
The device is worn on a magnetic lanyard around a consumer’s neck for fall detection or clips onto a consumer’s purse, belt, or pocket, and is used to communicate in an emergency or for other assistance.
Consumers should immediately stop using Lively Mobile Plus and contact GreatCall to receive a full refund. GreatCall is contacting all known purchasers directly.
