Siemens and Murray circuit breakers have been recalled due to a fire hazard. About 2.2 million circuit breakers, load centers and meter combos were imported from Mexico by Siemens Industry Inc. of Alpharetta, Georgia, and sold nationwide at hardware outlets from June 2010 through August 2010 for between $2.50 and $235.
The circuit breakers include a spring clip that can break during normal use, which can result in an insufficient electrical connection in the panel board. This can cause heat to build up, posing a fire hazard. The recall includes Siemens and Murray single and double pole 15 through 50 AMP circuit breakers, load centers and meter combos, which contain a load center and a meter socket. The circuit breakers involved in the recall are labeled with date codes 0610 or 0710. The load centers and meter combo units include date codes Jun 23, 2010, through August 25, 2020. Consumers were advised to contact Siemens for a free inspection and replacement, if necessary. Consumers can call 1-800-756-6996 for information.
