Eskay Imports Recall Power Strips

Chicago, IL (SafetyAlerts) - Eskay Imports is recalling about 900 units of the Memo six-outlet power strip. The quality of the internal components is inadequate, and the cord could separate from the power strip. Use of this power strip could result in a fire or shock incident.

The power strip is packaged in a white box with a blue stripe. While the power strip bears no labeling, the box is labeled in part, "Memo 6- OUTLET POWER STRIP," and "Designed in Taiwan." The power cord is labeled, "TR PLASTIC."

Independent retail stores in the Chicago area sold these power strips from July 1997 through September 1998 for about $3.

Consumers should immediately stop using this power strip and return it to the store where purchased for a refund.

For more information, consumers should call Eskay Imports, collect, at (773)558-9592 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday.
