Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Inpeco received several notifications from the field about burnt schuko sockets. The customers reported that some smoke was seen coming from the damaged sockets.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Employee error
Action Inpeco sent an Urgent Field Safety Notice dated October 2016 for the Aptio Automation, the Accelerator a3600 and the FlexLab Shucko power cord cables to all affected US and foreign customers. The Urgent Field Safety Notice described the reason for the recalls and actions that should be taken. The firm is requesting all customers to complete and return the Field Correction Effectiveness Check form attached to the Urgent Field Safety Notice letter within 7 days. The Urgent Field Safety Notice letter should be forwarded to affected departments or consignees. To mitigate any possible risks to the laboratory users' health conditions due to the defective power cords Inpeco released a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) addressed only to Field Service Engineer with the procedure which has to be performed in order to prevent other cases of damaged sockets. The FSE has to check visually the appearance of the Schuko female socket. If it is intact, without any detectable deformation nor melting the FSE has to verify that the terminals are correctly crimped into each single wire. If the female socket presents alterations, the socket has to be replaced with a new one. The affected sockets will be destroyed. Customers with questions were instructed to call (+41) 91 9118 258.
