Playtex Breast Pump Recall Issued for Power Adapters Due to Shock Risk
Playtex has issued a recall for power adapters used with certain breast pump products, after determining that the adapters may loosen from the pump and pose a risk of electric shocks for users.
The Playtex breast pump recall was announced by the FDA on March 18, impacting certain Nurser Delux Double Electric Breast Pumps with AC/DC power adapters.
The manufacturer indicates that the casing on the adapters may become loose and possibly separate from the pump. Although no reports have been received of injuries or incidents, these problems could pose an electrical shock hazard.
