WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Winstar International Inc., of Brooklyn, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 9,000 strings of Christmas lights. These lights have undersized wiring and lack over-current protection. They pose electrocution and electric shock hazards to consumers and also are fire hazards.

CPSC and Winstar are not aware of any injuries or incidents associated with these Christmas lights. This recall is being conducted to prevent injuries.
