July 25, 2012 Updated Jul 25, 2012 at 12:52 PM EST

(WBNG Binghamton) "Lush Life" six-outlet power strips fail to meet federal fire standards and wires pose a risk of shock.

About 6,00 Lush Life power strips are being recalled.

They were sold at Burlington Coat factory stores, the Container Store and
other retail stores nationwide from July 2011 through March 2012 for about $10.

The power strips have undersized wiring which poses a risk of shock to consumers. In addition, the wiring and plastic strip fail to meet fire resistance safety standards, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

There have been no reports of injuries.

This recall involves four designs of power strips. The vibrantly designed power strips come in four prints including, leopard, rose, skull and zebra. Model numbers 12256, 12257, 22563 and 22575 can be found on the six-outlet power strip.

Consumers should immediately stop using the power strips and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or store credit.
