E-filliate Has Recalled Extension Cords

Rancho Cordova, CA (SafetyAlerts) - E-filliate Inc. has recalled about 12,000 extension cords. The cords have reversed polarity, which can present electric shock and electrocution hazards to consumers.

E-filliate has received one report of reverse polarity, though no one has been injured.

The recalled Ziotek brand extension cords are black and about one to two feet long. The letters "MSL" are imprinted on the cord's three- pronged plug. The single-receptacle cords have the website, www.ziotek.com, printed on the cord; while the double-receptacle cords have the name "ZIO TEK" printed on the splitter. These extension cords were manufactured in China.

"Cyberguys" catalogs and the "Cyberguys" website (www.cyberguys.com) sold the extension cords nationwide from January 2002 through March 2002 for between $2 and $3.

Consumers should unplug the cords immediately and call E-filliate at (800) 327-6703 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday to receive a prepaid shipping label to return the cord and to select a free replacement or a full refund. Consumers who return the recalled product will also receive a 10 percent discount on a Cyberguys product. Consumers can visit www.cyberguys.com for information.

Cords that have the letters "MSL" imprinted on the plug, but which also have a yellow "QC" label wrapped around the cord, are not included in this recall
.
