The Container Store has recalled about 7,200 brightly colored Lush Life power strips because they fail to meet fire-resistance requirements, posing a fire hazard, Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.
The specific hazard is that the recalled power strips have undersized wiring, and the wiring and plastic strip fail to meet the requirements for fire resistance. No incidents or injuries have been reported in relation to this recall.
This recall involves three different designs of brightly colored, six-outlet power strips with model number 8001-6 embossed on the back. The power strips have three-foot power cords. “Lush Life® power strips by design” is printed on the product’s packaging.
Power strip designs include:
- Pop Power Strip in Scroll (black with white scroll)
- Dot (blue with orange, white and lime green dots and a lime green cord)
- Zebra (black and white zebra stripes)
The recalled power strips were sold for about $15 at The Container Stores nationwide and on containerstore.com from October through December 2011.
Consumers should stop using the recalled power strips immediately and return them to any of The Container Store locations for a full refund plus a $15 merchandise card.
