Fire Hazard Prompts Outdoor Camera Adapter Recall
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Netgear has recalled their outdoor camera power adapters for possible fire hazards.
These power adapters are for the Arlo outdoor cameras. The weatherproof
connector on the power adapter can be susceptible to a water leak and
cause a short circuit which can melt, overheat and pose a fire hazard.
Netgear has reported that this recall affects 7,300 adapters and consumers
are urged to immediately stop using the adapters. Consumers should contact
the company directly for a full refund for the defective adapters. Seven
reports have been filed with the company of cords melting and overheating
and one fire was reported. Luckily, no injuries have been reported.
Companies, manufacturers, distributors and retailers are responsible for
maintaining safe and reliable products for consumers. Product liability
laws help consumers by enforcing codes that these businesses must abide
by. Products are recalled all of the time for various issues however,
it is important to let consumers know if a product they own has a problem.
Even the most minor injury can result in major injuries for other consumers
if the product isn’t recalled. Consumers can be burdened with large
medical bills from defective products and be left feeling stranded both
physically and mentally. Always contact a product liability attorney if
you or a loved one has been injured by a faulty or defective product.
