About 160,000 RadioShack power supplies now in the field present a hazard of electrocution and fire.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and RadioShack announced a voluntary recall of certain 13.8V DC power supplies. They said you should stop using them immediately due to a wiring error.
No one has been reported hurt, according to the CPSC.
“The recall involves RadioShack 13.8V DC Power Supplies, catalog numbers 22-507 and 22-508 with date codes from 08A04 through 01A08,” the agency stated.
“Date code format is MMAYY where MM is the month and YY is the year. The catalog number and date code are located on the back of the power supply. Power Supplies with a green dot on the product and the product’s packaging have already been repaired and are not included in the recall.”
The units were sold at RadioShack stores around the country from October 2004 through January 2008 for between $50 and $85.
