Electric shock fears from broken plug

Medela Breast Pump Accessory Urgently Recalled

Medela has issued an urgent voluntary recall on a detachable wall plug, that is used with several of the company's breast pumps.

In a statement on their website, the manufacturer said they have received isolated reports that the plug, which connects to an AC power adapter, has broken into two parts and potentially exposes two metal terminals, creating the risk of electric shock.

The plug and AC adapter are supplied as a stand-along product, under the model number 099.0273, and are also supplied with the Medela Swing, Swing Maxi, and Medela Freestyle models.

Not all of the company's detachable wall plugs are affected, as shown below.

Customers with affected adapters should stop using them immediately, but breast pumps may continue to be used with battery power.

You need to contact Medela directly on 1800 787 354 to obtain a replacement part, or CLICK HERE to register your details.
