Surge protectors recalled due to shock hazard

Milestone AV Technologies of Savage, MN has recalled about 2500 of its low-profile power conditioners/surge protectors manufactured in China.

According to the company, improper grounding of the case and inadequate insulation for the circuit breaker pose an electrical shock hazard to consumers.  There have not been any reports of incidents or injuries related to the recalled surge protectors, but the company has initiated the recall to prevent any incidents in the future.

The affected surge protectors were sold through independent home theatre dealers from June 2009 through December 2010 for about $90.
