CPSC And Woods Wire Products, Inc. Warn Of Severe Shock Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Woods Wire Products, Inc. today announced that some 40,000 clamp-on lamps with metal reflectors, manufactured during 1970 and 1971 by Woods Wire Products, Inc. may pose an imminent danger of severe electric shock. When the lamp is plugged in, the metal spring protecting the cord from strain at the base of the bulb socket cap may become electrically "hot," thus creating a shock hazard.
