The Under Cabinet Power and Lighting power strips were imported from China by Legrand Wiremold of West Hartford, Conn., and sold nationwide from February 2011 through August 2012 for about $40.
The electrical wires are reversed on the receptacles on the power strips, posing a risk of electrical shock, the commission said in a statement.
The recall involves four-outlet power strips with model number PX1001. They were sold in a red package with "Wiremold-Series Part PX1001" printed on the front.
Consumers were advised to unplug and stop using the power strips and return them to Legrand Wiremold for a replacement or refund.
Consumers can call 800-617-1768 for more information.
