The relevant plugs were manufactured during the period May 2001 to September 2002. If you purchased an electrical appliance or an ICM or Burton plug, other than an extension lead, after May 2001 please look at the plug. Please see if the plug has 3 pins.
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".
