On June 16, 2022, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of approximately 1.4 million Schneider Electric breaker boxes in the U.S. and Canada because of a fire hazard. Specifically, Schneider Electric recalled the Square D QO Plug-on-Neutral Load Centers due to the load center overheating, causing “thermal burn and fire hazards,” according to the company’s press release.

“This recall involves indoor, outdoor, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Square D QO Plug-On Neutral Load Centers that were installed in homes, recreational vehicles, or commercial establishments, including restaurants, manufacturing facilities and warehouses, commercial lighting, and others,” the CPSC said in its release. “The circuit breaker boxes were sold in gray and come in various sizes (square and rectangular).”
