October 21, 2008
On September 17, 2008 DCI LLC, d/b/a Hanashop, of Olive Branch, MS recalled approximately 180 power cords. The power cord wires are significantly undersized and allow incorrect insertion of the power plug, posing a risk of fire and/or shock to consumers.
The recall involves 2-Ft., three outlet power cords. The power cord is orange in color and packaged in a counterfeit yellow and green cardboard sleeve. The packaging indicates the power cord is a “12 Gauge Extra Heavy Duty” type. Model number T-4145 is printed in front and back of the packaging, which is indicated in the picture below.
These units were sold by ebay.com nationwide from November 2006 through April 2008 for between $2 and $5 and manufactured in China
