Multifunctional pot flagged for potential safety hazards

SINGAPORE - A non-registered Jinshunli electric multifunctional pot was found to have several safety breaches.

These include a faulty thermal cutout, the lack of earthing for the accessible metal parts, and a 3 flat-pin plug that is unsuitable for the power sockets here.

These breaches pose both fire and electrocution hazards, making the product unsafe for consumers.

SPRING Singapore has found only one retailer selling the pot. Although the retailer is no longer selling this model, consumers who have bought the pots are advised to stop using them and approach the retailer for assistance.

Electric multifunctional pots are among the 45 categories of Controlled Goods which must be registered with SPRING and affixed with the SAFETY Mark before they can be sold on the market.

SPRING has the power to require those trading in non-registered Controlled Goods to stop selling and recall the Controlled Goods.

Offenders may be fined up to $10,000 or jailed for up to two years, or both.
