3M Earmuff Recall – Peltor X4

If you buy something through our links, ToolGuyd might earn an affiliate commission.

3M has issued a “Stop Use and Recall” notice for Peltor X4 series earmuffs manufactured during a specific time period.

3M discovered that X4 hearing protection earmuffs manufactured between March 2020 through September 2022 may develop cracks on the exterior surface.

They say that “ALL products produced in this timeframe must be removed from service even if no cracks are visible on the cups.”

The recall looks to affects all colors and styles of X4 earmuffs produced during this period.

3M says there have been no reports of injuries or accidents associated with this issue.

The company will be replacing affected products.

I was made aware of this Stop Use and Recall notice thanks to an alert from Amazon, based on my 2021 order of X4A hearing protection earmuffs.

I have a new-in-box X4A on the shelf with a 7/2020 date code, and will be sending them back to 3M for replacement.

Their form is straightforward and requires return of the affected product.

3M recently agreed to pay $6 Billion to resolve litigation over military-use earplugs, and so it seems they’re not taking any more chances on defects or potential defects.
