Legrand Wiremold Recalls Power Strips Due to Electric Shock Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Legrand Wiremold, a Connecticut-based company, are recalling more than 14,000 of their Legrand Power Strips due to electric shock hazards.

The recall pertains to power strips with model number PX1001.  The power strips feature four outlets and are typically used under cabinets. The electrical wires are reversed on the receptacles on the power strips, creating a risk of electric shock.

The Power Strips were manufactured in China and sold at Ace Hardware, Home Depot, True Value Hardware stores, and online at Amazon.com between February 2011 and August 2012 for about $40. No injuries have been reported but the company has received one incident report.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the power strips and return them to Legrand Wiremold for a replacement or refund.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
