CPSC, Legrand Wiremold issue voluntary product recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Legrand Wiremold, announced a voluntary recall.

This recall involves about 14,200 unites of the four-outlet under-cabinet power and lighting strips model number PX1001. The power strips come in a red package with “Wiremold-Series Part PX1001” printed on the front. The manufactured dates of the recalled products are presented as product date codes January 2011 through June 2012, and are found imprinted on a circle on the bottom with an arrow pointing to the number of the month and the year “11” or “12” in the center. The model number PX1001, and UPC number 0 86698 00125 3, are imprinted on the bottom of the packaging. Power strips that have a star symbol printed in black ink on the packaging and on the back cover of the power strip are not included in this recall.

The electrical wires in these units are reversed on the receptacles on the power strips, posing a risk of electrical shock. One incident was reported. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
