Why is my jumpdrive shocking me?

While plugged into a USB port on my PC, my recently purchaced jumpdrive (Sony Microvault 4GB) mildly shocks me as I try and handle it. It is pulsing with a current. Obviously I'm going to return it, but what I would like to know what causes this phenomenon? Talking with friends who usually are up on this sort of thing draws blanks.
