More than 14,000 Power Strips Sold at Nationwide Retailers Recalled Due to Shock Risk
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Legrand Wiremold is recalling more than 14,000 power strips that were sold at national retailers including Ace Hardware, Home Depot, True Value, Sutherlands and Amazon.com due to a product fault that poses a shock hazard.
If you were injured or a family member was killed as a result of a defective consumer product, a personal injury attorney who specializes in product liability may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income and other related damages.
The recall affects four-outlet power strips manufactured by Legrand Wiremold with the model number PX1001 and the UPC code 086698001253. The model and UPC numbers are printed on the bottom of the power strip packaging.
The power strips feature reversed electrical wires on the receptacles, which creates a shock risk, according to the CPSC. The power strips were sold between February 2011 and August 2012 in stores and online for about $40.
Consumers with these power strips should unplug them immediately and discontinue their use. Consumers can contact Legrand Wiremold at www.legrand.us for replacement and refund information.
