Counterfeit Square D Circuit Breakers Recalled

Comments Off

For the fourth time since last year the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled counterfeit circuit breakers.  The circuit breakers are labeled with the Square D name and may be a potential fire hazard.  They are believed to be manufactured in China by an unknown company.

The counterfeit circuit breakers are black and are labeled as Square D QO-series models 115, 120, 130, 215, 220, 230, 240, 250, 260 and 2020 and Square D QOB-series models 115, 120, 130, 220, 230, 250, 260 and 1515.

They were distributed by a Florida company, Specialty Lamp International, and the counterfeits were sold nationwide between May 2005 and June 2006.

The company can be contacted for more information about the recall at 1-866-650-3076 or their website www.ebulb.com.  The recall involves over 371,000 units.  Consumers are urged to stop using the counterfeit circuit breakers immediately.
