Washington, DC - Jul 2, 2008 - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Radio Shack issued a voluntary recall of two models of the retailer's dc power supplies. Users are warned to stop using the recalled products immediately. Radio Shack notes that there are about 160,000 affected units in the recall.

Radio Shack's part numbers are 22-507, a 3A supply with an automotive lighter jack and binding posts, and 22-508, a 15A supply with binding posts, with date codes from 08A04 through 01A08. The date code format is MMAYY where MM is the month and YY is the year. The catalog number and date code are located on the back of the power supply. The supplies were sold at Radio Shack stores from October 2004 through January 2008. Power supplies with a green dot on the product and the product's packaging have already been repaired and are not included in the recall. The recalled power supplies are wired incorrectly, posing electrocution and fire hazards. No injuries have been reported yet.

Owners of recalled supplies can return them to any Radio Shack store for a free repair. Registered owners of the recalled power supplies will be mailed a notice. Additional information is available through Radio Shack at 800-843-7422 or
