Intermatic digital timer frontOn January 9, 2008, Intermatic Inc., of Spring Grove, Ill., voluntarily recalled approximately 8,500 Intermatic DT27 Digital Self-Adjusting Timers. The recalled timers could have been wired incorrectly, which poses an electrical shock hazard to consumers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

This recall involves the Intermatic DT27 digital self-adjusting timer with a date code of “04B.” This product is a lamp and appliance timer and is packaged as either the “DT27C Heavy Duty Digital Timer” or the “DT27CL Time All Digital Lamp and Appliance Self-Adjusting Timer.” The timer is white with a rounded top, and measures 3 7/8” tall by 2 3/4” wide by 1 5/8” deep. The brand name “Intermatic” is molded on the front of the timer, and the model number (“DT27”) and date code (“04B”) are printed on the back of the timer.

These timers were sold at retailers nationwide, including Home Depot and Lowe’s, from February 2007 through December 2007 for between $15 and $25. They were manufactured by Ewig Industries Macao Commercial Offshore Ltd., of Macau, China.

Consumers should stop using the recalled timer immediately and unplug before checking the model number and date code. Consumers should contact Intermatic to return the timer and obtain a free replacement.
