CableWholesale, the leading cable and wire wholesaler, today highlighted two recent electronics safety warnings from the independent safety science company Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The first warning, issued on January 15, 2013, informed customers, regulatory agencies, and other interested parties of a counterfeit CMR communications cable that is missing the required flame retardant. This potentially dangerous cable is known to have been sold at overstock.com and a full description can be read at: http://www.ul.com/global/eng/pages/corporate/newsroom/newsitem.jsp?cpath=%2Fglobal%2Feng%2Fcontent%2Fcorporate%2Fnewsroom%2Fpublicnotices%2Fdata%2Ful-warns-of-potentially-hazardous-communications-cable-release_20130115080000.xml. The other notice, issued on January 31, 2013, warned about a similar communications cable missing the required flame retardant and thus posing a fire hazard. This cable has been sold at greenconnectionsusa.com and more information can be read at: http://www.ul.com/global/eng/pages/corporate/newsroom/newsitem.jsp?cpath=/global/eng/content/corporate/newsroom/publicnotices/data/ul-warns-of-potentially-hazardous-communications-cable-release_20130131080000.xml

That’s why we have each of our products thoroughly inspected three times and value the amazing and necessary efforts of companies like UL who are dedicated to protecting consumers across the globe.”
