What are the defects?

Affected vehicle jacks do not comply with the labelling or instruction requirements in the mandatory standard for vehicle jacks, which is based on the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2693:2007 because the prescribed safety information and warnings were not included on either the packaging or the jack itself.
