A US company that makes power leads for some of Hewlett-Packard's inkjet printers has issued a recall for nearly 2.5 million leads sold since April 2001.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) claimed that the leads, made by Longwell Electronics, could break and expose electrical contacts, creating a potential hazard. No injuries had been reported yet, and the recall was made voluntarily, the CPSC said.

The power leads in question were sold between April 2001 and February 2002 with the following HP printers: HP Deskjet 800 series and 900 series; and HP Photosmart 1000 series, 1100 series, 1200 series and 1300 series inkjet printers.

They can be identified by an engraving of Longwell's company name located between the two metal prongs on the plug. UK power leads are not affected.
