Don't Buy Dodge - Infinity Cable Recall Danger

Middy's have never stocked or sold Infinity cables. But beware if you've installed Infinity cables in the last 6 years...

You could be liable for damages or fines if you haven’t taken steps to remediate the faulty cable.

Approximately 2,300km of dangerous Infinity electrical cable is still installed in thousands of homes across Australia. Time is running out before the cables become a fire or electrocution risk.

Infinity cables were recalled because they deteriorate and become brittle more rapidly than normal compliant cables, especially in areas of high heat.

It is expected that in the next couple of months the cable insulation could start to crack and this may lead to electric shock or a fire if the cables are disturbed by tradespeople or home owners/occupiers.

This represents a significant risk of serious injury or death for any households in which this electrical cabling was installed since 2010 in NSW and since 2011 elsewhere in Australia, unless it has been remediated.

Electricians who installed the Infinity electrical cables and some Olsent electrical cable may face regulatory action including rectification orders and possible penalties if they don’t act now to notify property owners in order to have it remediated.
