The meters can fail to give an accurate voltage reading, resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is low or off, posing an electrocution hazard. Extech received two reports of clamp meters displaying an incorrect voltage reading. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled digital clamp meters and contact Extech for a free replacement meter.
