How are you ensuring the replacement doesn't have the same issue?

We have taken every precaution to ensure that the replacements we are sending you are safe and conform to all relevant standards. However, due to the nature of electrical goods such as power supplies, there is always a chance that a manufacturer or distributor may discover a fault which results in a recall.

Will this happen again?

We will continue to improve and develop our product procurement procedures in order to minimise the chances of further recalls occurring. However, due to the nature of electrical goods (such as power supplies), there is always a chance that a manufacturer or distributor may discover a fault which results in a recall.

You can be assured that any recall is only carried out with the best interests and safety of the public in mind. Therefore, it would not be responsible of us to guarantee that another recall could not occur in the future should we feel there is an appropriate risk to the public.
