Fluke Recalls Noncontact Electrical Tester Due to Shock or Burn Hazard

June 28, 2010

Fluke-1AC-I VoltAlert Voltage Tester On March 11, 2010 Fluke Corporation, of Everett, WA recalled approximately 33,000 VoltAlert® voltage detectors. The testers can fail to give an indication of live voltage, resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is off, posing a risk of serious injury or death from electrical shock or thermal burns. No injuries have been reported.

The Fluke voltage testers look like a pen with a yellow, white and gray body. The testers measure 90 to 1000 volts alternating current (VAC). “Fluke” and the model number are printed on the front of each unit. The recall involves Fluke 1AC-A1-I VoltAlert® tester.

These units were sold at industrial distributors and electrical wholesalers nationwide from September 2009 through February 2010 for about $25 and manufactured in China.

You should stop using the recalled product immediately and contact Fluke for a free replacement. For additional information, contact Fluke toll-free at (888) 983-5853 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.fluke.com/1AC-A1recall.
