Jimco Lamp, a Chinese manufacturer and distributor of lighting, home decor, and furniture, has recalled more than a hundred thousand accent tables due to a shock hazard.
 
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the tables' charging receptacles and USB ports can have an electrical issue that reverses polarity, resulting in shocks. The tables are made from MDF, solid wood, and other materials.
 
99,000 units have been recalled in the U.S. and 11,000 have been recalled in Canada. Consumers have been told to stop using the table to charge their items and to contact Jimco for a full refund.
 
The tables were primarily sold at retailers including HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls throughout North America, as well as on Amazon. Most units were sold between May 2019 and December 2020.
