Identification: Affected detachable wall plugs were supplied with the following models of Medela breastpump: SwingTM, Swing EssentialsTM, Swing PremiumTM, Swing MaxiTM, and FreestyleTM.

The breastpumps are supplied with one of three types of detachable wall plug that connect the AC power adaptor to the wall socket, of which only the one on the right of the photo below is affected.

Hazard: In rare cases, the detachable wall plug could split, exposing a live metallic
contact and creating a risk of electric shock.
