On February 5, 2009 Intermatic Inc., of Spring Grove, IL recalled approximately 200,000 Intermatic DT17 heavy duty digital timers. The recalled timers can have a faulty ground connection, posing a shock hazard to consumers. However, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
The recalled Intermatic DT17 heavy-duty digital timers are lamp and appliance timers. They were packaged as the “DT17C Heavy Duty Digital Timer” and the “DT17C8 Heavy Duty Digital Timer.” The timer is white-colored and measures 3 3/8” tall x 2 5/8” wide x 1 5/8” deep. Only products with date codes of “40Z” through “52Z” or date codes ending in “A,” “B” or “C” are included in the recall. The brand name “Intermatic” is molded on the front of the timer, and the model number (“DT17”) and date code are printed on the back of the timer.
These units were sold at retailers and electrical distributors nationwide from September 2005 through December 2008 for $15 to $25 and manufactured in China.
