A flurry of recalls preempted today's "Black Friday" shopping rush.

One of them involves an electrical hazard. If you are using part of the holiday weekend to attack some projects in your garage or workshop, you might need to check your overhead light. More than a quarter-million shop lights are under a voluntary recall because of a shock hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Cooper Lighting say there is a potential problem with the prongs on the electrical cord. The lights, about 274,000 of them, were sold this year.

Others recalls this week involved products for children.
