Milbank Manufacturing Recalls Single Meter Sockets Due to Electrocution/Fire Hazards

Milbank Manufacturing Co., the manufacturer of single meter sockets, has recalled the product due to a short circuit that can occur while in use as a result of an incorrect bridge installed in the product to which the meter clips are attached. If the manufacturing defect exists in the consumer's product, all metal parts to the touch could result in electrocution and significant burns if the cover is off and the meter socket is energized. The product description is a "single meter 200 amp/4 terminal sockets are used for underground utility meter installations. The meter socket is 20 3/4 inches high by 9 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep with 1 meter position." The product is designed to be used by an approving utility to mount the electric meter to measure how much electricity is used by a residence. It can be used for an underground residential application. The recalled model number 9090 appears on the right or left side of the installed meter socket. If not installed, model numbers U9090-O or R9090-O will appear on the label on the outside of the box. Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately and contact the electrical supply contractor who installed the sockets. Consumer may also call Milbank Manufacturing’s Sales Engineer toll-free at 888.537.0881 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and/or visit the company’s website at
