Eye-Fi X2 series cards not working correctly on EOS 60D, 450D, 500D, 600D and 1000D

This is a service announcement by Canon USA concerning the use of Eye-Fi cards of the X2 series( Connect X2, Mobile X2, Pro X2, etc.). The affected cameras are EOS 60D, EOS 450D, EOS 500D, EOS 600D & EOS 1000 (Euorope names, for the USA names see the text below). The problem only shows up in cams that have been repaired by an authorized Canon Service Center between March 1, 2011 and November 30, 2011:

It is possible that the EOS digital SLR cameras which have had their main PCB replaced during the specific timeframes listed above may not turn on normally when Eye-Fi brand cards are used, or if any brand of SD card is removed from the camera within a certain time after opening the card slot cover. If the camera is not turning on normally when using an Eye-Fi brand card, a temporary workaround is to use SD cards instead of the Eye-Fi card when capturing images. If the camera is not operating normally when the SD card is promptly removed after opening the card slot cover, a temporary workaround is to remove the battery pack, then re-insert the battery pack.

The Canon EOS digital SLR cameras affected by this phenomenon will be inspected and repaired free of charge. The temporary workaround consists in using SD cards instead of the Eye-Fi card. If the camera is not operating normally when the SD card is removed after opening the card slot cover, remove the battery pack, then re-insert the battery pack. The press release:
