Important Notice: Voluntary Replacement Program

Medela takes the safety of its valued customers very seriously. The wellbeing of mothers and children is our highest priority.

For that reason and as a precautionary measure, Medela is launching a voluntary replacement program for UK (Type G) detachable power plugs. The detachable plug connects to a power supply base which is included in a breast pump system.

The Medela breast pumps with affected detachable power plugs are Swing Maxi, Swing and Freestyle. Potentially affected detachable power plugs were sold – depending on the respective country – under the article numbers listed under www.medela.com/ukplug.
