Spiderman Flying Saucer (possibly counterfeit) Recall

25 January 2008

Risk

The product poses a risk of electric shock because:

  • the pins of the plug part of the adaptor are accessible when it is partly inserted into a class 0 socket-outlet and the pins make contact with the contacts,
  • the charger unit consist of a 2 pin transformer unit which is then connected to an adaptor plug. The safe operation of the charger unit cannot be assured as it is possible to connect the 2 pin transformer unit in any of 3 different positions on the adaptor (i.e. L to E, L to N, E TO N).


In addition the toy or the packaging was not marked with the name, trademark or identification mark of the manufacturer or responsible vendor.
