Designs Direct of Covington, Ky., has recalled about 2,000 of its Living Traditions rooster lamps, because the electrical cord can fray near the base of the lamp, posing a fire or shock hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this recall.

The recall applies to the 21-inch Living Traditions rooster-themed lamps. The brown polyresin lamps have an off-white shade and a carved 9-inch rooster affixed to the base. A label on the underside of the base reads "Distributed By Fred's Inc" and "SKU 61589."

The recalled lamps were manufactured in China and sold for about $20 at Fred's stores nationwide between October and November 2011.

Consumers should stop using the recalled lamp and contact Designs Direct for a refund. For more information, call Designs Direct at 888-770-7062, or visit www.regcen.com/roosterlamp.
