Company recalls digital clamp and multimeters

Extech Instruments of Waltham, MA has recalled about 5100 digital clamp meters and multimeters manufactured in China.

According to Extech, the meters can fail to give an accurate voltage reading when the battery runs low, potentially misleading the operator to believe that the electrical power is off or low, and posing a potential electrocution hazard.

The company has received one report of a meter displaying an incorrect voltage reading, but no reports of injuries.

The recalled meters were sold through industrial and electrical distributors and wholesalers nationwide and through online tool and test equipment retailers, from January 2008 through November 2010, for between $150 and $300.
