12/2 NMD90 75M Romex SIMpull Cable (yellow) Recalled due to Inaccurate Labelling
May 5, 2022
This recall involves a yellow electrical wire, 12/2 NMD90 75M Romex SIMpull cable, sold by the spool. Products were also sold at Home Depot designated as article 108196. Only cables with a time stamp between 12:41 and 18:02 are affected by this recall.
The recalled product contains a neutral wire that is a smaller 14-gauge wire, contrary to the stamp on the wire identifying both the neutral and “hot” wires as 12-gauge (i.e., “12/2”).
The recalled product contains a 14-gauge neutral wire instead of 12-gauge (as labelled), thus it may not perform as expected in 12-gauge applications, resulting in a risk of those applications having impaired performance and/or compliance with safety codes or standards.
As of April 8, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
