Power Strips Recalled For Shock Risk – VA Defective Product Recalls

Connecticut based company Legrand Wiremold has recalled a number of their Under Cabinet Power and Lighting four outlet power strips because of a possible electrical shock risk, reports PRNewswire.com.

Around 14,200 of the power strips, manufactured in China and sold at True Value Hardware, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Do it Best, Sutherland, and online at Amazon.com from February 2011 to August 2012 for around $40, have been recalled because of a defect that caused the electrical wires to be reversed on the receptacles of the power strips, posing a shock risk to consumers.

Tots In Mind Inc. Crib And Play Yard Tents Recalled

Multiple models of Tots in Mind Inc. crib and play yard tents that were recalled back in 2010 are still a danger to consumers, reports The Washington Post.

The company first came out with a repair kit for the tents, but since then has gone bankrupt.

The crib tents have been sold through many online retailers, including Amazon.com, as well as stores like Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Burlington Coat Factory, and Bed Bath & Beyond (sold through the website Buy Buy Baby).

The tents pose a strangulation risk and there have been a total of twenty-seven tent failures since their release. One boy died in 2008 after he became trapped between the frame and the metal rod at the base of the tent. Another child suffered serious brain injury in 2007 when his crib inverted and he became trapped by the neck.

Around 330,000 units have been recalled so far.

If you have purchased a defective crib tent, contact the store from which you purchased it for refund details.
