September 28, 2016 – The Electrical Safety Authority is notifying the public that Eaton has announced a voluntary recall of its 30A general duty 2- and 3-pole switches with catalogue numbers beginning with CDG221 or CDG321. This is because the line/load lugs may cause terminal overheating or allow wires to dislodge.

The issue is limited to units produced between May 3 and July 19, 2016, and distributed between May 3 and July 22, 2016. The units were manufactured in the United States.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries, Eaton says. The products are to be returned to Eaton Canada for repair and/or replacement. For units that cannot be returned, a field repair kit is available.
