Product Safety Australia (PSA) has recalled these products because if the power supply is assembled incorrectly, the live parts can be left exposed, which does not comply with the country’s electrical safety standard, as it puts consumers at risk of electric shock.
PSA has recommended that consumers immediately ceases using power supply APP524-051240U by turning off the general power outlet, disconnecting the adaptor from supply, and store power supply securely. It is safe for consumers to continue to use their hard drive products without the power supply.
Affected consumers should contact Western Digital to receive a replacement and further information on how to safely dispose of the power supply. Customers can lodge such a request here.
