Coppell, TX — The Container Store and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 7,200 Lush Life® power strips for fire hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on February 1, 2012.

The power strips were recalled after discovering that they have undersized wiring, and the wiring and plastic strip fail to meet fire resistance requirements. This defect poses a fire hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves three designs of brightly-colored, six-outlet power strips with model number 8001-6 embossed on the back. Power strip designs include Pop Power Strip in Scroll (black with white scroll), Dot (blue with orange, white and lime green dots and a lime green cord), and Zebra (black and white zebra stripes). The power strips have three-foot power cords. ‘Lush Life® power strips by design’ is printed on the product’s packaging,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the power strips to any The Container Store for a full refund and a $15 merchandise card.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact The Container Store toll-free at (888) 266-8246 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CT Monday through Saturday, and between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT on Sunday, or visit www.containerstore.com.
