Safety Notification – Power Adaptor (Transformer)

This letter is to notify you that Medela, Inc. is initiating a safety notification on the power adaptor (also referred to as the transformer) used with the Pump In Style

 

® Advanced (PNSA) family of breast pumps. When not handled properly, a small percentage of these power adaptors can develop damage in the form of twists, kinks, bends, bulges or exposed wires in the cord. Medela has had reports of Power Adaptors being used after the cord has been damaged.

The following is stipulated in Medela’s Instructions For Use manual sent with every PNSA breastpump:

"Warning: To reduce the risk of burns, electrocution, fire or injury to persons:

1. A product should never be left unattended when plugged into an electric outlet.

2. Close supervision is necessary when this product is used, on, or near children or invalids.

3. Use the product only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer.

4. Never operate this product if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged, or dropped into water.

5. Keep the cord away from heated surfaces."

The power adaptor is UL-approved for use with the PNSA and is safe for use if not damaged. There have been no reported injuries related to the power adaptor. Should a power adaptor (or power adaptor cord) show signs of damage, discontinue use and contact Customer Service for a replacement at www.medelapoweradaptorhelp.com. Customer Service is also available to assist you at 888-633-3528 or email at poweradaptor@medela.com if you have any questions.
