Voluntary recall for defective electronic timers after Illinois consumers report shocks

Posted on July 10th, 2009 by Zane Cagle

Intermatic, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of more than 240,000 in-wall electronic timers this week after consumer reports indicated the defective timers risked shock injuries. According to consumer feedback, the batteries used for the product posed a shock hazard due to the metal within the timer coming into contact with other internal metal parts. The timer is often used on lamps and appliances in lieu of a standard wall switch. As a result of these reports, Intermatic issued an immediate recall of all Intermatic Models ST01 and EI600 timers to avoid further injury liability. So far, the Illinois-based manufacturer has received at least 12 shocks complaints for this product. These consumers may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
