Universal Security Instruments will resume the shipment of its ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) units, manufactured by Shanghai Meihao Electric, this April. The company stopped shipment in August 2003 after Underwriters Labratories (UL) identified the units as potentially hazardous.

The company reported that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reviewed the UL’s concerns and test results of the GFCI units, and closed the case without recommending a recall. UL stated that its previous concerns have been resolved, and has approved the units for listing and sale.
