Time of Release and Cameras with which Affected Products can be Used
Although the four interface cables are manufactured in the People's Republic of China and the motor drive coupler covers are manufactured in Taiwan, the "country/region" appearing on the packaging for the all of these separately sold products is mistakenly listed as Japan.
To ensure that similar mistakes do not occur in the future, Canon will make every effort to achieve thorough control processes. The products in question were manufactured to meet the high quality standards required for all Canon genuine products and can be used with confidence.
