Canon recalls cameras over skin rash worry
August 17 , 2012
Canon is to recall some of its digital cameras after it emerged a chemical reaction involving the device's rubber grip could cause a skin rash.
The EOS 650D range contains a substance which, when exposed to humidity, produces a substance known as "zinc bis".
Zinc bis turns the camera's rubber grip white and can also cause irritation.
Camera owners have been offered a free repair.
It is believed that 68,200 cameras suffered the manufacturing glitch.
