A Salt Lake City-based company on June 9 issued a recall to approximately 9,300 units of surge protectors in the U.S. that may possibly cause harm to intended users, an article of cpsc.gov reported.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recall affects at least three surge protector models of “360 Electrical” that are equipped with non-grounded plugs. Consumers reportedly are at high risk of sustaining electrical shock or burn injuries if the surge protectors short circuit after being plugged into an electrical outlet. The recalling company and the CPSC were both unaware of any injuries or incidents involving the possibly defective surge protectors. People are advised to check the model number of their surge protectors and report it to 360 Electrical to get a free surge protector.
