Interlogix of Lincolnton, N.C., is recalling about 67,000 wireless personal panic devices.
The wireless personal panic devices can fail to operate, which could result in the device not communicating with the security system if activated in the event of an emergency.
There have been five reports of personal panic devices not communicating with a security system as intended, but no reports of injuries.
The personal panic device is typically sold as an accessory to a professionally installed security system and is worn by end users either around their neck or wrist.
The products subject to this recall are TX-4200-01-1 (white) and TX-4200-01-2 (black) with a manufacturing date code less than 16154.
The devices, manufactured in Mexico, were sold through professional security installers and distributors nationwide from May 2014, through January 2016, for about $35 to $50.

Consumers should immediately contact their professional security system installer or monitoring company for a free inspection of their personal panic device and a free replacement device for those that fail inspection.
