Home Improvement Books Recalled - Shock or Fire Hazard to Customers

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Oxmoor House, Inc. (publisher of Sunset Books and others), recently updated a voluntary recall of a number of home improvement books due to faulty wiring instructions that could result in shock or fire hazard to consumers. Consumers (and, of course, libraries) should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. More information, including the specific titles, is available here:

  1. I've heard about this in the news today. Authors should be really careful as to what they're writing in books, blogs or websites. People might blindly follow them.
