Power strip recall because of fire hazard

(WFLX)-- Nearly 50-thousand under-cabinet power strips are being recalled, because they can overheat and start a fire.

The internal electrical connections of the Wiremold and Plugmold power strips are substandard.

The recall affects all strips with part number "PX1001".

They were sold nationwide and online from February 2011 through last month for about 40 dollars.

If you have one unplug it.
