The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that Central Lake Armor Express model MEGB-DP33 has been permanently removed from the NIJ Compliant Products List due to unresolved safety concerns. Any armors of this model 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.
