WASHINGTON, D.C. - Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of Product: Travel Charger Kits for Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablets

Hazard: The plastic cover on the charger’s exchangeable plugs can come loose and separate, exposing internal components that pose an electrocution hazard if touched while the plug remains in a live socket.

Remedy: Refund, Replace

Consumer Contact: Nokia toll-free at (888)665- 4228 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.nokia.com and click “Recall Notice” at the bottom of the page for more information.
