Heads up Lake Area builders and contractors…there’s a major recall underway for Electric boxes that may have been installed in homes in the Lake Area.

Officials with Schneider Electric have recalled 1.4 million of its electrical panels due to the potential to overheat, causing burns or catching fire.

The model Square D QO Plug-on-Neutral Load Centers were manufactured between December 2019 and March 2022.

These indoor and outdoor models were installed in homes and recreational vehicles, as well as commercial establishments, including restaurants, manufacturing facilities and warehouses, commercial lighting and others.

The company says these boxes were sold at authorized Schneider Electric distributors, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Menard’s.

Purchasers and installers should contact Schneider Electric immediately to arrange to have them inspected by trained electricians, offered free of charge, to determine if replacement or repair is required.
