(KFVS) - Light path kits with LED power supplies have been recalled due to a shock hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 77,000 units of the Hampton Bay, Patriot Lighting and Paradise light kits with Sterno Home LED power supplies were recalled.

They said the path lights have a defective Sterno Home LED power supply that has a plug blade the can remain in the AC outlet when the LED power supply is pulled from the outlet, posing a risk of shock.

Consumers should immediately stop using the path lights and contact Sterno Home to receive a free replacement LED power supply and installation instructions.

They said the power supplies alter the voltage going through the light circuit. The kits have “Hampton Bay,” “Patriot Lighting” and “Paradise” printed on the rating label of the lights. They were sold at Home Depot and other hardware stores nationwide and online from March 2017 through May 2020 for between $50 and $100.
