(NBC) -

A shock hazard has prompted the recall of thousands of electric pencil sharpeners.

The recall involves about 44,000 Bostitch brand electric pencil sharpeners -- the Quietsharp Glow Classroom and Super Pro Commercial.

They both have six pencil sharpener openings with "Bostitch" embossed on the side.

They were sold at Office Depot, Staples and other office supply stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from April 2012 through this past August for $70-$155.

Consumers should stop using the product, unplug it and contact Amax for a free replacement.
