About 20,000 Power Adapters for heated pet beds have been recalled by Radio Systems Corporation of, Knoxville, Tennessee. When the metal connector is removed from the bed, it can cause arcing between the coil spring and the connector, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The firm has received three reports of connectors melting. No injuries or fires have been reported. This recall involves the Class 2 Transformers that were sold with PetSafe Heated Wellness Sleepers. The power adapters are identified by the markings “PLUG IN CLASS 2 TRANSFORMER,” “MODEL NO: K12-800″ and have a spring coil covering the length of the electrical wire that goes from the sleeper.
Power adapters without spring coils are not affected by this recall. The adapters were sold at Pet specialty stores, catalog and online retailers nationwide from September 2006 through April 2010 for between $70 and $110. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled power adapter and contact the firm to receive a free replacement adapter.
