The Fluke Corporation, the manufacturer of the Fluke VoltAlert® Voltage Detector, a noncontact electrical tester, has issued a recall of this product, because the unit may fail to give an indication of "live voltage" resulting in the operator having a false reading that the electrical power is off when in fact it is on posing a risk of serious injury or death from electrical shock or thermal burns. The Fluke voltage tester looks like a pen with a yellow, white and gray body. The tester measures 90 to 1000 volts alternating current (VAC). “Fluke” and the model number are printed on the front of each unit. The recall involves Fluke 1AC-A1-I VoltAlert® tester with the model and item number of 1AC-AI FLUKE-1AC-I VoltAlert Voltage Tester. Consumers should immediately discontinue using the recalled product and contact Fluke for a free replacement by calling toll-free at 888.983.5853 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.fluke.com/1AC-A1recall.
