WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Motorola Inc. Broadband Communications Sector, of Horsham, Pa., is voluntarily recalling about 1 million DCT2000 digital cable set-top boxes installed earlier this year. Pins in the rear of the box that connect to the power cord could break, which could pose an electric shock hazard to consumers.

CPSC and Motorola have not received any reports of these set-top boxes causing shock or injury.

As previously announced, Motorola filed a preliminary report with CPSC about the DCT2000 set-top boxes in June 2002. Digital cable operators distributed these set-top boxes nationwide in conjunction with digital cable services from March 2002 through June 2002.
