Jimco Lamp & Manufacturing Co., of Austin, Texas, is recalling about 100,000 J Hunt Home and J Hunt and Co. accent tables with charging receptacles sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The convenience charging receptacles and/or USB ports installed in the accent tables can have an electrical issue resulting in reverse polarity, which can pose a shock hazard to the user.
