3M and Safetec of America, Inc. have issued a product recall on the 3MTM Tekk ProtectionTM Industrial/Construction First Aid Kit (118-piece), which contains single-use foil packets of Safetec-branded burn cream.
The recall results from a failure in stability testing of the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride within Safetec’s first aid and burn cream. While analgesic properties of the product are unaffected and no direct harm will befall the user, the burn cream may not be effective as an antiseptic.
Discontinue use of first aid kits with lot numbers 11215-05, 11216-05, 11216-06, or 11217-05 (located on the bottom or side of the kit) and UPC bar code number 000-51141-34020-3 and return to Summit.

Acme Electric has issued a product advisory notice for its single phase general purpose and buck boost transformers in sizes ranging from 0.25 kVA to 2 kVA. The mounting brackets on some transformers have come loose either during or shortly after installation, resulting from a quality issue with the weld between the mounting bracket and the metal enclosure.
Depending on how the transformer is installed or being installed at the time of failure, such a failure could cause personal injury and/or property damage.
Inspect the date code on each transformer, which is printed on a small silver sticker located on the original shipping box and on the outside of the metal enclosure. If the date falls between EIA-413-1224 (week 24 of 2012) and EIA-413-1303 (week 3 of 2013), and you suspect that the transformer is not mounted securely, has a loose mounting bracket, or poses a risk of falling, contact the Acme Customer Service Team at 1-877-201-2445 to request a free replacement bracket.
The free replacement bracket has been designed to fit over the existing transformer and can be installed by simply loosening the transformer from its mounted position.
If the transformer is securely mounted and/or not mounted using the welded-on rear mounting bracket, or if the date code does not fall between the aforementioned date code ranges, then no further action is necessary.

Weidmuller has issued a Product Safety Advisory to inform you of a potential anomaly that exists with Weidmuller WPE 2.5 – 1010000000 and WPE 4 – 1010100000 Screw Clamp Grounding Terminal Blocks.
In some cases, the grounding terminal block may not provide a secure grounding connection to the DIN rail. This may cause an open circuit between the terminal block and the DIN rail. Wires or cables attached to the terminal block may not be grounded, leaving parts of the device energized. This may create a shock hazard due to the possibility of improper grounding.
For more information: Weidmuller’s Product Safety Advisory on WPE 2.5 / WPE 4.
