Texas-based RadioShack is recalling about 160,000 DC power supplies because they were not properly wired and pose fire and electrocution dangers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The recall affects the 13.8V DC power supplies with the date codes 08A04 through 01A08, sold in RadioShack stores in the U.S. from October 2004 through January 2008 for between $50 and $85.
No associated injuries or incidents have been reported.
The power supplies were made in China.
Consumers should stop using the products and return them to RadioShack for repair.
