A digital temple thermometer made by K-Jump Health Co., Ltd., and distributed by Colorado-based Bestmed, LLC, is being recalled because it can display inaccurate body temperatures.
The recalled thermometers feature a DTT logo on the front, and model number KD-2201 is shown on a label on the back of the product. The affected lot numbers ─ S/N: 3612 through 3715 ─ are on the bottom of the label after the S/N designation.
Model KD-2201L is not recalled.
These handheld thermometers were sold between October 2012 and November 2015 in the U.S. for direct sale and resale, and throughout Canada in consumer retail stores, under various packaging labels.
Consumers should stop using the device and return it to Bestmed for a replacement thermometer. For more information, contact Bestmed via telephone at 877-299-6700, facsimile at 303-271-0163, or email at DTTRecall@bestmedusa.com.
