Recalled Electrical Appliances happen everyday & can cause mass damage or even
electrocution. That is why it's very important to always be updated with with an electrical appliances that have been recalled. Recalls can happen for many reasons. One of which is if a test and tag technician finds a new item that fails it's first appliance test and tag check. At ServiceCorp - Test and Tag we often find electrical appliances that are brand new & fail our safety test. A lot of this equipment is made overseas where the safety/compliance isn't as strong as it is here in Australia. This is why appliance test and tagging is so important & is required to be done regularly and in line with Australian Standards AS/NZS 3760:2010.
