In a press release, the Container Store Inc, of Coppell, Texas, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), issued a voluntary safety recall of its Lush Life power strips due to an undersized wiring problem which could lead to a fire hazard. The recall affects roughly 7,200 units of the defective power strips and is centered on three different designs with model number 8001-6 imprinted on the back. To date, no injuries have been reported to the Container Store or the CPSC in relation to these power strips. However, consumers are being ask to stop using them immediately and return them to any Container Store location to receive a full refund and a $15 store credit.
As a Harrisburg personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen this kind of safety recall many times in the past and I understand the difficulties that manufacturers can face when attempting to provide safe, quality products for their customers. That said, I’ve also bared witness to the devastating injuries that defective products similar to this have caused to consumers. If you have suffered an injury through the use of a poorly designed or otherwise defective product, it may be in your best interests to speak with a personal injury lawyer in your area with experience in these matters to learn more about your legal rights as a consumer.Tweet
