Belkin shocks adapter users with product recall

Connectivity solution provider Belkin has identified a potential issue with its Universal AC Travel Adapters, which could lead to consumers who incorrectly use these devices experiencing an electricity shock.

Connectivity solution provider Belkin has identified a potential issue with its Universal AC Travel Adapters, which could lead to consumers who incorrectly use these devices experiencing an electricity shock.

Those adapters with the part code F8E449ea do not pose any risk if used correctly, Belkin claimed today in a press statement, however should these adapters be used incorrectly (by inserting them as shown in the image to the right), there is what Belkin terms a risk that, “in the event of making contact with the live exposed pin, the user will experience a 220V or 240V shock”.

Belkin is therefore asking all owners of these adapters to contact its European Customer Service Department using the following freephone telephone number: 00 800 223 55460.

The firm will then organise each product's return and each customer’s reimbursement.
