Electrical Shock Hazard Prompts Recall of Skylight Power Adapters Sold with Digital Photo Frames

On November 7, 2019 Skylight issued a recall for power adapters sold with digital photo frames due to electrical shock hazard. The power adapter casing can break when plugged into an electrical outlet, exposing its metal prongs, posing an electrical shock hazard. Skylight has received eight reports of adapters breaking and exposing their metal prongs, including one report of an electric shock to a consumer.

The recall is specifically for the Series I power adapters sold with Skylight digital photo frames. The power adapters are black and have a circular indentation on the side. UPC code 679113611535 can be found on the packaging.

About 65,000 units were sold in the U.S. and in Canada online at www.skylightframe.com and Amazon.com, and in Von Maur stores nationwide from April 2018 through March 2019 for about $160 with the digital photo frame.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled adapters and contact Skylight for instructions on proper disposal and how to receive a free replacement adapter. Skylight is contacting all known purchasers directly.
