Breast pump recall reminder issued following reports of an electric shock risk.

Medela has reissued its 2016 recall of the detachable plugs sold with its Medela Swing, Medela Swing Maxi and Medela Freestyle breast pumps.

The popular baby company advised parents who have bought breast pumps before October 2016, and have since put them in storage, to check the power adaptor.

The potential fault is with one type of detachable wall plug, which is a component part of the AC power supply for certain products.

“At Medela, your safety is our highest priority and we are publishing a recall reminder to ensure that you check whether your breast pump power adapter is subject to the recall,” the company said in a statement.


“This is NOT a new recall but a reminder of the recall we commenced in October 2016.”

Contact Medela for a replacement
Customers who believe their adaptor may need to be replaced are advised to register their details with Medela or call them on 1800 787 345.

The pumps can still be used with battery power until a replacement power source arrives.

If you purchased a Medela Personal Use breast pump after October 2016, or if you have already had your detachable wall plug replaced by Medela Australia, there is no need for further action, the company said.

More information is available on the website or call 1800 787 345.
