The safety recall announcement was issued on June 16 and stated that the “hazard involves a loose neutral screw connection within the QO Plug-On Neutral Load Center.” The affected circuit breaker boxes were manufactured from February 2020 through January 2022 and have date codes between 200561 and 220233. Also included in the recall are all circuit breaker boxes with covers made between December 2019 and March 2022.
