Reason/Issue The AC Power Adaptors consist of two parts, a detachable wall plug and the power adaptor itself, with cord attached. Medela has received reports of the detachable wall plug component breaking into two parts, thereby potentially exposing a live metallic contact. The exposed contact may create the risk of an electric shock to the user.

There are three types detachable wall plugs, with each breastpump supplied with one of the three types. Not all detachable wall plugs are affected, only those without markings or a dot on the back are affected. The AC Adapter component and the breastpumps themselves are not affected by this issue.
