There has been about 12,000 indoor and outdoor extension cords and power strips that have been recalled due to a fire hazard. Howard Berger Co. Inc. of Cranbury New Jersey has recalled the extension cords and power strips because they may have inadequate coating material around the cords and copper conductors that are smaller than required, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

The model numbers that are involved in the recall are R2600 through R2615 which are outdoor extension cords, EE6 through EE20 which are indoor extension cords and MP6DG for the power strips. "Brightway" is printed on the cords.
