Fire,
Electric shock

The travel adaptor supplied with the product poses a risk of electric shock and fire because:

- the holes for the pins are not provided with shutters;

- the poor design of the connection between the socket contacts and their associated pins results in an inadequate electrical contact that would overheat.

One incident reported.

The product does not comply with the relevant national standard.

Compulsory measures: Withdrawal of the product from the market.

Enforcement is a top priority of the EU Consumer Policy Strategy 2007-2013. Both measures leading to RAPEX notifications and measures which come to the attention of the Commission and other Member States as reactionsare indications of enforcement activity in the Member State concerned.

In order to give a better view on the overall level of enforcement, including the follow-up activities of the national market surveillance authorities, the Commission RAPEX team has decided to publish on the RAPEX website also the names of the countries that have found the notified product on their market and have taken appropriate measures (and have submitted a reaction to a RAPEX notification as a consequence).

Information about the reacting countries is available in the RAPEX weekly overviews in the column 'Products were found and measures were taken also in'. The Commission RAPEX team will publish reactions sent (from May2009 onwards) to 2009 RAPEX notifications.
