FDA regulators issued a memo today warning that certain Playtex breast pumps may have been shipped with faulty power adapters that could cause electrical shocks to users.
The recall affects Playtex Nurser Deluxe Double Electric Breast Pumps with adapters that were manufactured from November 2012 through July 2013. The adapters have casings that may be prone to separation, exposing dangerous components.
The products were sold around the country, the FDA said.
The company noted that no injuries had been reported to date and that the recall was initiated out of "an abundance of caution." Playtex has asked retailers to return any remaining products and consumers to immediately stop using the devices in question.
