    Cook Medical is advising that they will be replacing the mains wiring for affected each unit. An authorised service agent will contact users to arrange for impacted devices to be corrected. In the interim, Cook Medical recommends that a residual current device (RCD), also known as a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI), ground fault interrupter (GFI), or an appliance leakage current interrupter (ALCI) is fitted to the mains electricity supply to mitigate the risk of a hazardous situation.
