RECALL: Eaton heavy duty 30A and 60A safety switches pose potential safety issue
July 6, 2018 — Eaton recently issued a recall for certain Eaton heavy duty 30A and 60A safety switches intended for use in heavy commercial, utility and industrial applications.
The safety switches can potentially supply power when the handle is in the “off” position, subjecting the operator of the switch or any downstream equipment to risk of serious bodily injury or death.
As of July 2, 2018, the company says there have been no reports of injuries resulting from this issue.
The affected safety switches were manufactured between November 19, 2015 and January 23, 2018, and primarily sold in the U.S. and Canada.
