LG Microwave Oven
This recall covers LG Microwave Ovens with the model numbers MS2346VR and MS2347GR and serial numbers starting with the numbers 708 to 802, sold from September 2007 to now.
There is a possibility of an internal cover becoming detached and making a connection between live parts and the external enclosure, which may result in an electric shock to the user. This risk is higher in locations with poor electrical earthing.
Mistral toaster Oven
Model no’s. MTO100, MTO200CH and MTO300CH. The following products manufactured during 2001 and 2002 are affected by the recall:

- MTO200CH – batch code 0135 and 0228
- MTO300CH – batch code 0135, 0153, 0217 and 0231
There is a potential safety hazard associated with selected Mistral toaster ovens as a result of an unsuitable supply cord being fitted. Sections of the cord may become damaged if it comes into contact with the hot metal rear surface of the unit. This may result in inadvertently exposing the user to live conductors.
TELSTRA Brand Cordless Telephones
