Salton Inc. (Lake Forest, IL, U.S.), is recalling 16,700 outdoor appliance timers because they pose a shock risk.

The company says the Timex outdoor appliance timers have reverse polarity in their wiring, which allows current to flow to the attached appliance when the timer is turned off. That poses a risk for an electric shock.

The timer is designed to be mounted on a wall and plugged into a 120 V outlet. It has an outlet on the underside for the appliance plug.

Consumers can program the device to turn lights and appliances on or off at desired intervals.

The word "Timex" is printed on the front door of the timer and on the dial inside. A label on the back includes the words "Model Number: 12/810."

The timers were sold at selected Lowe's stores nationwide from November 2003 through December 2003 for about U.S. $20 each.

Owners of the recalled timers should contact Salton to receive a prepaid shipping label to return them. Salton will send the consumer a replacement timer.

For more information call Salton at (800) 919-3101 or e-mail the company at salton@saltonusa.com. (Internet Broadcasting Systems)
