Progress Lighting has recalled about 7,500 indoor ceiling light fixtures. A cable that supports the light fixture from the ceiling can fail, fall, and cause potential injuries. Progress Lighting has received five reports of fixtures falling, including a report of an incident where two consumers suffered bruises.
This recall involves the International Series indoor (foyer) light fixtures. The light fixture has metal hardware and frosted white glass. The fixtures use either incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. "Made in/Hecho en/Fabrique aux China" and the model number are written on the packaging and inside the fixture's canopy, which is attached to the ceiling. Model numbers involved are:
The fixtures were also sold under the Thomasville Lighting brand name.
The fixtures were manufactured in China and sold at electrical/lighting distributors and The Home Depot stores nationwide from January 2005 through March 2008 for between $290 and $1,150.
Consumers who have either Progress Lighting's or Thomasville Lighting's recalled ceiling lights should carefully remove any of the glass, and contact Progress Lighting to schedule a free inspection and replacement.
