The following is lifted from an email update from CPSC. I thought some of you guys might be interested since the recalled product(s) is(are?) test leads from Fluke.

"WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm

below.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless

otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Modular Test Leads used for Electrical Testing

Multimeters

Units: About 110,000

Manufacturer: Fluke Corporation, of Everett, Wash.

Hazard: The leads, which are used to connect probes to handheld digital

multimeters when testing for the presence and amount of voltage present

in electrical circuitry, can result in incorrect multimeter readings.

This poses

a serious shock or electrocution hazard if the consumer touches live

wires

that the meter has read as having no electrical current. Fluke has

received

29 reports of the leads for Fluke multimeters operating improperly,

though

no injuries have been reported"
