Recall – E2222 and E2500
Immediate Action Required: Do not sell product, segregate, and return.
A deficiency in the structure of the anti-drain back valve used in the E2222 and E2500 oil filters creates a potential for the material to tear. This issue is on a limited production of these two oil filters. Please see below for details and required actions.
- Production of the suspect oil filters is limited to date codes from 10/01/2018 to 03/13/19. Any receipts of oil filters after 11/15/18 and until 3/14/19 should be investigated to determine the date codes of such stock.
All customers with possible affected filters have been contacted. Please reach out to your Rowleys Account Representative if you have not been given the Recall form in order to be reimbursed for the replacement Oil Changes.
