(WMBF) - Nearly 50,000 under-cabinet Legrand brand power strips are being recalled, because they can overheat and start a fire, according to information from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The internal electrical connections of the wire mold and plug mold power strips are substandard. The recall affects all strips with part number "PX1001".

The Legrand power strips were sold nationwide and online from February 2011 through last month for about $40, according to the CPSC release.

If you have, one unplug it. Contact Legrand Wiremold for information on obtaining a refund for the recalled product.
