Pendant Light Fixtures Recalled by Progress Lighting
June 10, 2008
On June 10, 2008 Progress Lighting, of Greenville, S.C. recalled approximately 7,500 pendant light fixtures. A cable that supports the light fixture from the ceiling can fail, causing the fixture to fall and injure anyone nearby. Progress Lighting has received five reports of fixtures falling, including a report of an incident where two people suffered bruises.
The 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 by 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.
