Chubb Fire & Security Pty Ltd t/a VitalCall—Plug-in power adaptor for VitalCall MK9 unit
What are the defects?
When force is applied to the plug-in power adaptor, or when the adaptor is removed/attempted to be removed from the power socket, surface cracks or breaks may appear on the base of the power adaptor, or the plug face plate may separate from the adaptor. This has the potential to expose live electrical wires.
What are the hazards?
If the plug-in power adaptor cracks or breaks, or if the plate separates from the adaptor, live electrical wires may be exposed, which could result in electric shock and/or fire.
What should consumers do?
(1) Visually inspect (without touching) the plug-in power adaptor to see if it has model number A35S0900300 on a white sticker that matches the one in the photo in the recall notice.

(c) Using the website (www.vitalcall.com.au) or emailing us at email@example.com
