What’s the Problem?

This recall affects multiple styles and colors of J Hunt Home and J Hunt and Co. Accent Tables with convenience charging receptacles and USB ports, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“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,” CPSC said.

The recalled tables were sold with hang tags marked as “J Hunt Home” or “J Hunt & Co.” All recalled units have a white adhesive label on the underside or back of the unit with the item number and date codes between April 2019 and November 2020. The date code is listed as a 2-digit month followed by a slash and a 4-digit year code such as 04/2019.

Affected tables were sold online and at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and other home furnishings stores nationwide from May 2019 through December 2020 for between $60 and $130.

If you purchased a table that is affected by this recall, you should stop using the charging receptacles and ports and contact Jimco Lamp for a full refund or a free replacement accent table.

This recall began on February 17, 2021.

What is Reverse Polarity and Why is it Dangerous?

Reverse polarity is a dangerous situation because it presents a risk of injury or death to anyone who interacts with an outlet that has this issue. This includes anyone who attempts to repair their outlets without knowing what they are doing.

It can also cause a fire if the reverse polarity goes unnoticed and damages wires or components that lead to sparks, which in turn causes a fire.

Worse still, if you keep your outlet reversed you are increasing the risk of an electrical shock. For this reason, appliances and devices with reverse polarity are a major cause of electrical shocks. This is why you should unplug your devices from the outlet receptacle once you are done using them.

Some of the potential dangers of a reverse outlet polarity include:

  1. Increase potential electrical shocks
  2. Causes fire accidents
  3. Damages your house or office electrical equipment
  4. Frequent tripping fuses and circuit breakers
