Hazard: The decorative wall plates can dislodge from the backplate and short circuit the outlet, posing a risk of electrical shock or fire.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using and remove the recalled wall plates. The manufacturer will provide you with a full refund for the purchase price of the wall plate(s).
Recalled Product: The recalled Allen + Roth Linden and Brainerd Ironton wall plates have two plates that are attached by hidden fasteners: (1) a backplate that screws into the wall like traditional wall plates, and (2) a decorative cover that snaps over the cover through use of spring clips. The recalled plates have a smooth, metallic finish and fit a variety of switch and outlet designs. The recalled decorative wall plates snap onto the backplate without the use of screws. Under the decorative plate, the backplate is stamped with the letters “LHMC.”
