Warning Issued On Certain Medicine Cabinets

Washington, D.C. -- Owners of nearly 9,000 Sears and Kent medicine cabinets with built-in electrical outlets purchased since September, 1974 were today urged to return them due to a potential shock hazard.

It is also possible that a shock hazard could exist if the medicine cabinet itself is not properly installed.
