Legrand Australia—HPM Assorted Extension Leads
What are the defects?
The wires have been accidentally transposed during manufacture, meaning the pins on the plug may not be wired to the correct aperature on the socket.
What are the hazards?
If the Active and Earth wires are swapped, there is a risk of electric shock if the extension lead is used with a Class 1 (earthed) appliance.
What should consumers do?
Customers are advised to unplug the product immediately and contact the HPM Legrand Australia call centre on 1300 369 777 (selecting option 1) between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Customers are further requested to have the potentially affected product with them when they make the call.
