ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) _ The Eastman Kodak Co. is voluntarily recalling some 75,000 digital cameras sold worldwide because a manufacturing defect could give users an electrical shock.

Kodak said the recall only includes DC5000 digital camera. That particular model was sold nationwide from June 2000 through last month at a retail price of between $600 and $700.

The company received a dozen reports of customers who got an electrical shock while changing batteries, plugging in the memory card or USB computer cable. There were no reports of serious injury.

Kodak reported the problem to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and agreed to the recall.

If you have a Kodak DC 5000 Zoom Digital Camera, the company advised you to stop using it and contact Kodak.

The company will cover the cost of inspection, any necessary repair and shipping to and from repair centers.

Contact Kodak online at www.kodak.com or call Kodak at (888) 793-2977 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

The cameras have the DC5000 model number on the front of the camera at the bottom right-hand corner. A plate on the bottom of the camera reads ``KJCAA'' followed by an eight-digit serial number, ranging from 01800001 through 11700825.
