Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Allen + Roth Linden and Brainerd Ironton Wall Plates have two (2) plates that are attached by hidden fasteners: first, a backplate that screws into the wall like traditional wall plates, and second, 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 electric 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”.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional brands, designs and variations the recalled Metal Wall Plates are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the Decorative Metal Wall Plates can dislodge from their backplate and short circuit the outlet, posing a risk of electrical shock and/or fire. The firm has received two (2) reports of short circuits when the Wall Plates dislodged from their backplate and touched an energized, partially released plug. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Decorative Metal Wall Plates, please do not use them. Instead, kindly remove them and contact Liberty Hardware Manufacturing for a full refund.

==> Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) when working with electrical fixtures, including gloves and protective eyewear.
