Description: Extension Cord Recalled by Sprint International NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Media Relations May 2, 1996 (301) 504-7908 Release # 96-117 CPSC and Sprint International, Inc. Announce Extension Cord Recall WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sprint International, Inc. of Brooklyn, N.Y., is recalling 20,196 extension cords. The cord's wires are undersized, making them unsuitable for use as extension cords because they cannot carry the same load as properly constructed extension cords. The recalled cords present a fire, shock and electrocution hazard. In addition, the cords are made with a plastic that, once ignited, continues to burn and spread flames. CPSC and Sprint International, Inc. are not aware of any injuries involving these extension cords. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. The brown or white extension cords measure 6 feet (item AC-67-6), 12 feet (item AC-67-12), 15 feet (item AC-67-15), or 20 feet (item AC-67-20). The cords are labelled in part, "SPT-2 ... 18AWGX2C." The cords were packaged in cardboard sleeves labeled in part, "SPRINT... HOUSEHOLD EXTENSION CORD." Retail stores in New York and New Jersey sold the cords from January 1994 through December 1995 for between $1 and $3. Consumers who own the recalled extension cords should stop using them immediately and return them to the stores where purchased for a full refund. For more information, consumers should call Daniel Sivarak at (718) 499-5511 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Consumers who live outside the New York metropolitan area should call (800) 955-3115. [Learn More]
