Accent Tables Recalled By Jimco Lamps Due to Shock HazardJimco Lamps is recalling about 99,000 J Hunt Home and J Hunt and Co. Accent Tables With Charging Receptacles in the United States and about 11,000 in 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. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves multiple styles and colors of side accent tables with convenience charging receptacles and USB ports.

The tables are made of MDF, solid wood, veneers, and other materials. Some of the tables have mirrored accents, one drawer or two drawers.

All of the tables contain convenience receptacles for AC and DC electricity for ordinary receptacles and for USB charging pins.

The units are sold with hangtags marked as “J Hunt Home” or “J Hunt & Co.” The different styles of the recalled tables measure about 14 inches by 14 inches by 28 inches high for many of the tables up to 24 inches by 15.5 inches by 74 inches high on some bookcase style units. The tables weigh between 13 and 26 pounds.

All recalled tables have a white adhesive label on the underside or back of the table with the item number and date codes between April 2019 and November 2020. The date code is listed as a two-digit month followed by a slash and a four-digit year code such as 04/2019.
