Medela Recalls Breast Pump Adapter


Medela Recalls Breast Pump Adapter

Makers of Breast Pumps Medela have issued an urgent recall on the Power Adapters today.

“Medela has received isolated reports of the detachable wall plug breaking into two parts, thereby potentially exposing 2 metal terminals.  In the interests of customer safety, Medela has decided to conduct a voluntary recall (by way of provision of a replacement detachable wall plug) for affected detachable wall plugs” they have said on their website. They say that some of the products could easily break, exposing two metal terminals and could infact cause an electric shock.

Not all of the adapters have been recalled and the company are urging anyone whose adapter looks like the one below to immediately stop using it. However, Breast Pumps are not affected and can continue to be used.
