Whilst a very useful resource, the Electrical Safety First website is not normally that entertaining. Typically there is a list of battery chargers that pose a fire risk and similar items, but today is different as a recall has just been announced of Anne Summers “Black Power Wands”. Not only that but the reason for the recall is described as “Risk of electric shock. Prolonged use may result in the wires in the cord at the base of the product becoming exposed.” So please do spread the word to friends and family. We may never see data from this particular recall, but typical success rates for electrical goods are only 10-20% so there could be quite a few faulty “Power Wands” out there for some time to come.
