Product description
Foot massager supplied with a switched mode power supply unit in a brown cardboard packaging


The product presents a serious risk of electric shock as the lengths of the live and neutral pins were too short and therefore not compatible with sockets outlets conforming to BS 1363. The conductors had been soldered on to their respective terminals and there were no barriers to prevent a detached wire from reducing creepage distances and clearances to levels below the minimum required by the standard. The item is also not labelled with manufacturer or importer details and lacks relevant markings.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.

Corrective action
The import has been rejected and destroyed at the border.
