Fluke Corp. recently issued a voluntary recall of certain 333, 334, 335, 336 and 337 digital clamp meters that were manufactured between Jan. 29, 2008 and Feb. 27, 2009.

"If you own one of these clamp meters, please stop using it and send it back to Fluke for replacement," the company said in a notice posted on its Web site. "If you are not the primary user of the Fluke 33X Series Clamp Meter, please pass this notice along to the appropriate people within your organization."

Through quality assurance tests, Fluke discovered a potential short-circuit connection on the circuit board, which may lead to inaccurate voltage readings including a low- or no-voltage reading on a circuit energized with a hazardous voltage. This finding could create a hazardous situation if the user were to contact live voltage based on an erroneous instrument reading.

Fluke will provide a replacement clamp meter free of charge, once it receives a recalled model.
