The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that subject armor units with the serial numbers of 1 – 53, have been permanently removed from the NIJ Compliant Products List due to unresolved safety concerns. Any armor units manufactured with the serial numbers specified should be replaced as soon as possible.
NIJ encourages law enforcement and corrections officers to continue to wear their body armor until it is replaced. Wearing untested armor is better than not wearing any armor.
