Megaman state that "there is a serious fault with batch number 14W41 which in a few cases can result in a live bayonet cap which will, in a correctly installed earthed class I fitting, simply cause the circuit breaker to trip or fuse to blow with minimal risk. However, in class II fittings without earth a live cap results in a risk of electric shock"
