Burton & ICM—Electrical 3-Pin Plugs
What are the defects?
A tester used to ensure continuity in the earth circuitry of ICM branded and some Burton branded plugs has been identified as faulty. This means some plugs may not properly earth the circuit. A risk of electric shock or fire would only arise where the plugs were not earthed properly.
What are the hazards?
Electric Shock or Fire
What should consumers do?
If your plug has 3 pins and the letters ICM and K1-53 around the outside edge; or the word Burton and the letters F and B7 on the plug perimeter; please check for the following markings: texta marks on 2 of the pins or has a sticker that says "TESTED OK".
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is the responsible regulator for this recall.
