On February 14, 2007, Zoeller Pump Co., of Louisville, KY recalled about 2,300 units of Zoeller brand septic pumps with a 20-foot black cord with a plug for a possible shock hazard. The plug on the sump pumps could have a grounding problem that could pose an electrical shock hazard.
These sump pumps were sold nationwide from September 2006 through December 2006 for between $125 and $375 and they were manufactured in the Philippines and United States. The affected sump pump models have a 20-foot black cord with a plug. Here is the description of the sump pump:
The pumps have date codes 0906 and 1006. On models 53, 57, 151, 152 and 153 the date code is printed on the nameplate on the top of the pump. On Model WM48 the date code is printed on the tag near the plug. “Philippines” is stamped on the plug
