2016.11.25 Recall: Swann Wireless Door Chime

The following notice has been issued by the retailer:

Swann Wireless Door Chime Twin Pack with Mains Power - A95TB
Swann Wireless Door Chime with Mains Power - N31QG

Swann Door Chime

Maplin has been advised by their supplier 'SWANN' of the Recall of the two products above.

If you have purchased one of these products from Maplin, please immediately refrain from using it and return it to store for a refund.

The details of this recall are below:

Swann is voluntarily recalling certain wireless door chime packs purchased from Maplin between 27 January 2016 and 31 October 2016.

Swann has identified that, as a result of a manufacturing issue, in a small proportion of units the plastic around the assembly screws on the speaker unit can fracture, leading to the risk that the two halves of the unit may become detached from one another. This could cause the live internal electrical components to become exposed to the user, creating a risk of electric shock if the unit is plugged in to the mains electricity supply at the time.

This affects both single chime and double chime packs. No other Swann products are affected.
