WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), In-Mar Trading Inc. of Miami, Fla., is recalling about 115,300 extension cords. The cords have undersized wires that cannot carry the advertised load, plugs that are not polarized properly, poor strain relief and lack of overcurrent protection presenting fire, shock and electrocution hazards.

CPSC and In-Mar Trading Inc. are not aware of any injuries involving these extension cords. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recalled extension cords are white or brown. The cords have double wires, three female plugs and one male plug, and are available in the following lengths: 6, 9, 12, 15 and 20 feet. The receptacle is labeled in part, "Rated for 125 volts...For indoor use only."

The cords are packaged in red, white and black cardboard display sleeves that are labeled in part, "SUPER POWER EXTENSION CORD...MADE IN CHINA." The last 5 digits of the UPC code range from 70027 through 70036.

Discount stores mostly in Florida, New York and North Carolina sold the extension cords from October 1996 through December 1996 for between $1 and $4.

Consumers should stop using the recalled cords immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. If consumers have questions about this recall, they should call In-Mar Trading Inc. at (800) 881-6627 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.
