Comments Off

Howard Berger, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced a voluntary recall of 12,000 Indoor and Outdoor Extension Cords and Power Strips.

Hazard: The extension cords and power strips have inadequate coating material around the cords and copper conductors that are smaller than required, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

To this date, the company has not received any reports of injury associated with the recalled power cords.

Brightway heavy duty outdoor extension cords and Brightway indoor extension cords and power strips are involved in the recall.

Model numbers affected by the recall are:

R2600 through R2615 (outdoor extension cords)

EE6 through EE20 (indoor extension cords)

The recalled extension cords should not be used to avoid injury. They can be returned to any store of purchase for a refund.
