Default Has your electricals been recalled?

The thread about "Crackly fizzy (mechanical ?) noise from TV ?" has
prompted me to look this up.

https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.or...oduct-recalls/

"The average success rate of an electrical product recall in the UK is
just 10-20%, this means that there are potentially millions of recalled
electrical items still in the UK"

Lots of things.

That says that the Recall Date was 03 Aug 2018, so can we
assume that the product currently on sale is safe?

Looks like a bit of non-understanding panic here. Since when has it been
possible to get a shock off 12V - for which these connectors are intended?

Check put my posting "Lidl Mains Connector" in uk.d-i-y on the 7th
of this month.


All that says is:

"
Lidl are selling sets of IDC type conectors of various sizes.
They look like Scotch Locks sold under their usual instore
brand name. They are rated for mains voltages, but no mention
of an enclosure. Are these actually complient with the regs?"

No mention of a product recall.

Although you will note it does say "risk of electric shock" at the end
of the list of specs, so you can't say you were not warned! ;-)

And is any risk associated with installing it incorrectly - much in the
same way as installing anything else incorrectly.
