Urgent safety concern with Powerline device!

Joining in

It has come to my attention, through the VM forum, that the powerline devices provided are a known fire hazard as others have also brought up this concern. This device has already tripped my circuit, and other customers have reported this issue and got it replaced with the Black pod. 

I do not feel safe to continue to use these however I now have black spots around my house where the power line connected me.

Please could I get them replace asap.
