North American Breaker Co. Recalls Counterfeit Circuit Breakers Due to Fire Hazard

This isn’t a stamping story exactly, but many stamped products are also counterfeited in China, so it seems related to me.

The notice comes from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission web site.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Name of Product: Counterfeit Circuit Breakers labeled as “Square D”
Units: About 50,000
Distributor/Retailer: North American Breaker Co. Inc. (NABCO), of Burbank, Calif.
Hazard: The recalled circuit breakers labeled “Square D” have been determined by Square D to be counterfeit and can fail to trip when they are overloaded, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

    We are an independant, consumer information website dedicated to ALL recalls, WORLDWIDE !

    The last year has seen a huge increase in the number of deadly product recalls!

    Spinach, Dog Food, Childrens Toys all get major headlines…But there are problems…

    1. Unless you check several recall websites dutifully daily, there are a lot of recalls you miss, period !!!

    2. Many of our products are from China, hence so many China recalls…But there are many products from other countries you are not aware of, that can do harm…

    3. Information on recalls is confusing, uninformative and sometimes panicky…We hear about a ”peanut butter” recall, and we stop eating ALL peanut, when only one brand is affected.

    4. Relying on T.V, Radio, Newspaper, and all the other 100’s of websites, for your recall information, is a time- consuming, outdated,dangerous way for you to get your recall info.

    5. If you do nothing to EMPOWER yourself to become better AWARE of recalls, you leave your family unprotected…DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THEY ARE AFFECTED, OR WORSE, A STATISTIC…The newspapers are full of salmonella, listeria, ecoli horror stories…

    What to do…

    Go to http://www.totalrecallinfo.com

    Click join, and add your email and a password…It’s that simple !!!

    Within 24 hours you will recieve your first life-saving newsletter, with a brief description of EVERY recall worldwide !
    If one catches your eye, you click on it for more info and pics…
    There is also more links and phone numbers, for further research…

    We are THE ONLY website to offer our members 100% recall coverage…If there is a recall we don’t know about, we will PAY YOU for it…
    This alone saves you the time consuming burden of looking up recalls daily…

    But knowing there is a recall[eg. spinach] and knowing ABOUT a recall[eg. Farmers Fresh Spinach, 1kg. Local] are 2 different things !

    Try http://www.totalrecallinfo.com FREE for a month…

    THIS IS THE BIG TEST……Every day compile a list of recalls you heard about in the news…In the evening compare that to our recalls newsletter…THE FACT THAT THERE WAS EVEN 1 RECALL TODAY,THAT YOU DID NOT HEAR ABOUT, is the reason for our being…But there is probably several…

    Many people will say ”We took your FREE trial, and not 1 recall affected us”

    To them we say ”If only 1 recall affected your family THIS YEAR, would it be worth knowing about it??? And quickly???”

    KEEP AWARE…KEEP SAFE…
