U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls power strips due to fire hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls power strips sold nationwide due to a fire hazard.
Lush Life power strips were recalled on July 19 due to the undersized wiring that poses a shock risk to consumers. The wiring and plastic strip do not meet fire resistance safety standards, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
Burlington Coat Factory distributed approximately 6,000 power strips to its nationwide locations, along with other retail stores, including The Container Store, from July 2011 through March 2012.
The recall applies to four designs including leopard, rose, skill and zebra. The model numbers are 12256, 12257, 22563 and 22575. You can find the model numbers on the six-outlet power strip.
The USCPSC has not reported any injuries related to the recall.
If you have one of these power strips, stop using the power strip and contact the place of purchase for a full refund or store credit.
