About 175,000 linear personal emergency reporting system transmitters (PERS) are being recalled, because the batteries used in the transmitters can fail to emit a low battery warning.

That means users think it's working when it may not be. The PERS transmitters can be worn around the neck, on the wrist, or as a belt clip.
