In Case You Missed It - Schneider Electric Recalls 1.4 Million Electrical Panels
"Schneider Electric is recalling 1.4 million electrical panels due to thermal burn and fire hazards. The load centers can overheat, posing thermal burn and fire hazards.
This recall involves indoor, outdoor and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Square D QO Plug-On Neutral Load Centers that were installed in homes, recreational vehicles, or commercial establishments, including restaurants, manufacturing facilities and warehouses, commercial lighting and others.
The circuit breaker boxes were sold in gray and come in various sizes (square and rectangular). The recalled circuit breaker boxes were manufactured between February 2020 and January 2022, with date codes between 200561 and 220233.
For installed outdoor load centers, the manufacturing date codes are printed on the inside of the cover or door of the unit or on the box itself when the cover or door is open.
