Home Improvement Books with Faulty Wiring Instructions Recalled

A large <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">recall of about 951,000 Home Improvement Books published by Oxmoor House, Inc., of Birmingham, Alabama, has been announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The CPSC said that the recalled Home Improvement Books contain errors in the technical diagrams and wiring instructions that could lead consumers to incorrectly install or repair electrical wiring, posing an electrical shock or fire hazard to consumers. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recalled Home Improvement Books, which were printed in the United States, were sold at home improvement stores and bookstores nationwide from January 1975 through December 2009 for between $13 and $35.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using these books and contact Oxmoor House for a full refund. Oxmoor House can be reached toll-free at 1-866-696-7602 anytime or at its Web site at www.sunsetrecall.com
