What is the problem?

The power strips have undersized wiring, and the wiring and plastic strip fail to meet the requirements for fire resistance, posing a fire hazard.

How can I tell if I own this product?

This recall involves three designs of brightly-colored, six-outlet power strips with model number 8001-6 embossed on the back. Power strip designs include Pop Power Strip in Scroll (black with white scroll), Dot (blue with orange, white and lime green dots and a lime green cord), and Zebra (black and white zebra stripes). The power strips have three-foot power cords. "Lush Life power strips by design" is printed on the product's packaging.

Note: Additional, similar power strips were subsequently recalled.

These items were sold new+ at The Container Stores nationwide and on the firm's website www.containerstore.com from October 2011 through December 2011 for about $15.
