The Office for Product Safety and Standards has issued a product recall for Top Cowl Assembly in Mercury Marine V6 and V8 Outboard Engines. 

The product has been recalled due to the potential for fingers to enter the top cowl air vents on some engine models. To prevent this, Mercury Marine is offering a bezel assembly to cover the top cowl air vents. Installation of the bezel assembly is required on all sold and unsold product.

Corrective action

Mercury Marine have contacted all registered owners advising them of the issue. Owners should contact an authorised dealer to schedule a service appointment to enable the bezel assembly to be fitted.

Next steps

Owners of the above products are advised to visit the Product Safety Alerts page on the GOV.UK website for further information.
