Why the product is recalled
The black moulded plastic insulators covering the neutral connecting terminals can be brittle and may crack. If cracked, it may expose the user to an electrical current. If cracks spread, it may lead to further damage and expose the connector’s metal parts and allow direct contact with the user.
What the hazards are to consumers
There is a risk of serious injury or death from electric shock.
What consumers should do

Check the date code to see if the cable is affected. If the date code is illegible or missing, contact Fluke for more information.
