Ceiling-Mounted Outdoor Light Fixtures Recalled by Progress Lighting
March 30, 2008
On March 19, 2008, Progress Lighting, of Greenville, S.C. recalled approximately 1,000 outdoor ceiling light fixtures. The light fixtures were recalled because a weld that affixes a mounting bracket to the ceiling pan can fail, which can cause the fixture to fall and injure nearby persons. Progress Lighting has received six reports of fixtures falling. No property damage or injuries have been reported.
Only Progress Lighting ceiling-mounted outdoor light fixtures with model numbers P5526-20 and P5526-44 are included in the recall. The light fixtures have three flame-shaped lights inside a beveled glass and solid frame. The fixtures require (3) 60-watt light bulbs. “Made in/Hecho En/Fabrique Aux China” and the model numbers are written on the packaging of the product.
These fixtures were sold at electrical and lighting distributors nationwide from January 2007 through November 2007 for about $200. They were manufactured by Pegtom, of Hong Ding, China.
Consumers should contact Progress Lighting to schedule a free repair of the lighting fixture. For more information, contact Progress Lighting toll-free at (866) 418-5543 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.progresslighting.com.
