Square D Arc Fault Circuit Breaker Product Recall

http://www.squared.com/us/squared/corpo ... ameset.htm

Our number one priority is the safety of our people, our customers and our products. Because of this, we are working in conjunction with the Consumer Products Safety Commission on a voluntary recall of our Square D arc fault interrupter (AFI) circuit breakers manufactured between March 1, 2004 and September 23, 2004.

Our tests indicate that the arc detection capability may become inoperable in these breakers due to the failure of an internal component in the electronic detection circuit. We have found that the circuit breaker will not properly detect or interrupt a high resistance low current arcing fault.

The short circuit and overload interruption capability of these breakers continues to function properly. This means that the circuit breakers will continue to provide the same level of protection offered by a standard circuit breaker, but will not provide the additional arcing fault protection required by local building codes in many municipalities.

You have associated the Square D brand with industry leadership, safety, quality, reliability and innovation for over 100 years now. You can be assured we will act quickly and appropriately to ensure you receive the quality products and services you have come to expect from us. Call our AFI Breakers Recall Center toll-free 1-877-202-9046 with question or for more information.
