JT has recalled the proteus mask due to a potential defect in the plastic behind the ear pieces. this could lead to a failure of the strap. you can fine more info on how to get your mask replaced at Recall Information
Has nothing to do with BE owinging JT.. part of the terms of sale was that BE could not mess with their product or manufacturing process for 5 years.. its just a flaw in the design nothing more. get over the anti BE crap people it just makes you look stupid.
