Medela breast pump

The safety and wellbeing of mothers and children is Medela's highest priority.
That is why, as a precautionary measure, we have launched a voluntary replacement program for UK (Type G) detachable power plugs. This replacement program is in response to a few isolated reports in which a detachable UK power plug reportedly broke apart as the plug was being removed from the wall, exposing live parts. These plugs were sold with Swing, Swing maxi, and Freestyle breast pumps from 2012 to September 18, 2016. The pumps themselves are not affected, only the detachable plugs. As a precautionary measure, Medela asks customers to comply with the following:

1. While removing an affected power supply adapter for UK sockets, please remove the plug slowly and deliberately, apply as little force as possible, and handle the whole adapter with utmost attention and caution. If you apply a certain level of force, an affected detachable power plug might break apart.

2. If the detachable power plug breaks, turn off the power source before removing it from the wall. Remove the detachable power plug from the power socket and do not use it before a replacement is sent to you.

3. You may use the breast pumps Swing and Swing Maxi with batteries.

4. If you have an affected plug, please contact Medela immediately. We will send you a free plug replacement as soon as possible. Please keep the power supply base, which is not affected. You can register online for your free plug at www.medela.com/ukplug or contact Medela UK customer service at 0044 (0)161 776 0400.

Toshiba battery replacement program

Toshiba has announced a voluntary recall to replace Panasonic battery packs manufactured for and used with certain Toshiba laptops sold between June 2011 and January 2016.

The battery packs were sold with new laptops and as accessories, or replacement battery packs in the course of repair. Because there is a possibility that the battery packs can overheat, they could pose a burn or fire hazard. Toshiba is offering a free replacement for affected battery packs.

If your battery pack is part of Toshiba's recall/replacement program, Toshiba recommends you turn off the laptop and remove the battery pack immediately. You can continue using your laptop safely by powering the laptop with an AC adapter power until you receive a replacement battery pack.

For more information, please visit the Toshiba website.
