(Best Syndication News) - Around 14,200 Legrand Under Cabinet Power and Lighting four-outlet power strips are being recalled voluntarily by Legrand Wiremold because they could cause an electric shock. The power strips may have had the wires reversed on the receptacles. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), on behalf of the importer, announced the recall today.

The recalled power strips were sold at Hardware, Do it Best, Home Depot USA, Sutherland, True Value Hardware stores and online at Amazon.com. They were sold between February 2011 and August 2012 at a price around $40.

The recall involves the under-cabinet power and lighting strips with the model number PX1001. The model number “PX1001” and the UPC number “0 86698 00125 3” were printed on the bottom of the packaging. The package is red and has the words “Wiremold-Series Part PX1001 printed on the front.

The recalled strips have the date codes of January 2011 through June 2012. The date codes are found on the bottom of the unit and are displayed as a circle with an arrow. The arrow points to the month and the year; a “11” or “12” is in the center of the circle. If the power strip packaging has a star symbol printed in black ink on the back cover, it is not involved in the recall.

Consumers who have the recalled power strips should stop using them and unplug the units from the power source. They are asked to contact Legrand Wiremold for instructions on how to get a replacement unit or a refund.
