Pass & Seymour Recalls Electrical Receptacles
On April 9, 2020, Pass & Seymour recalled commercial-grade electrical receptacles due to a burn hazard. A manufacturing error within the product could lead consumers to improperly force the plug into the receptacle, resulting in overheating and, ultimately, a burn risk.
A list of recalled models is available here. The model number is printed on the labels on the individual product boxes or cartons. “Legrand” is printed on the back of the receptacles. The following manufacturing date codes can be found on the outside of the carton: 43U, 44U, 45U, 46U, 47U, 48U, 49U, 50U, 51U, 52U, 53U, 01V, 02V.
The following manufacturing date codes may also be found hot-stamped on the back of the device(s): “MU”, NU”, “PU” and “AV”.
The receptacles were sold at electrical equipment suppliers and other stores nationwide between October 2019 and February 2020. The price ranged from $3 to $10.
