  • Causa
    Welch allyn has been made aware that the kleenspec 788 corded illuminator has the potential to be incorrectly connected to a commonly available ac power cord instead of the illuminator low voltage transformer power cord. this may result in a shattered lamp and a potential electric shock hazard. commonly available ac line power cords do not have an integrated wall transformer and therefore, the electrical current from the outlet is fully transferred into the device. there have been no associated injuries, but the misconnection can be reproduced. for example, the illuminator cord connector may fit into ac power cords from common consumer equipment, such as laptops, and other medical devices that have similar power cord connector.
  • Acción
    Welch Allyn is providing users with additional labelling to place on the cords to remind users to only connect the Illuminator with the corresponding corded wall transformer. This action has been closed-out on 22/08/2016.
