NEW YORK (CNNfn) - Kole Imports, of Carson, Calif., is recalling about 4,000 electric circuit testers. The circuit testers can fail to indicate if electric current is present, posing a risk of electric shock to consumers.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has received one report of an electric shock received by a consumer when the circuit tester did not work.

graphicThese Sterling-brand screwdriver-type circuit testers are about 5.25 inches long. The tester looks similar to a small screwdriver, and has a clear plastic handle. Inside the handle are a spring and small light. The tester has a red plastic end cap. There is no writing on the testers. The model number "ML-24" and "MADE IN CHINA" are written on the packaging.

Discount stores sold these circuit testers nationwide from January 2000 through September 2000. They cost about $1 for a package containing two testers.

Consumers should stop using these recalled circuit testers immediately. Consumers with these testers should contact Kole Imports to learn how to receive a refund.

For more information, call Kole at (866) 251-0982 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit Kole's Web site. graphic
