CPSC Recalls Trim Accessory Kits for Hazard


Recommended Posts

Washington, DC, Dec 28th - Release #07-071

Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Progress Lighting Inc., of Spartanburg, S.C., recalled about 12,800 trim accessory kits for recessed lighting fixtures, due to a falling parts issue that can cause injuries. The manufacturer recommends that Consumers stop using the recessed light fixtures containing the recalled trim rings immediately and contact Progress Lighting to arrange for installation of a replacement trim ring.

According to the manufacturer, heat from the light bulb can cause the fixture's plastic trim to soften and melt, causing the trim and lens to fall. This can result in laceration injuries to consumers. Progress Lighting has received four reports of the trim rings melting but no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves trim assembly kits that attach to recessed light fixtures installed primarily in bathroom ceilings. The trim assemblies include a 7 3/4-inch white plastic ring, a glass lens and a metal reflector. These were sold by electrical and lighting distributors nationwide from July 2006 through December 2006 for between $9 and $27.

The affected models were made in China and have model numbers: 8009-60, 8010-60 or 8011-60. The model number and country of manufacture are located on a sticker attached to the inside and outside of the reflector. Models made in Mexico are not included this recall.

For more information, call Progress Lighting's toll-free number at (877) 369-4548 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or log on to www.progresslighting.com. Inspectors can download or print a copy of the official CPSC recall by clicking here.
