When consumers trying to replace the timer’s battery place a metal object through the battery tray slot, the object can reach internal metal contacts, posing a shock hazard to consumers.
To date, the company has received 12 reports of consumers receiving a minor shock while attempting to change the timer’s battery.
The recall includes the following Intermatic model numbers sold at stores nationwide:
