The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Progress Lighting, has announced a voluntary recall of about 1,000 Progress Lighting outdoor ceiling light fixtures. The fixtures can fall and injure nearby persons, due to the fact that a weld that affixes a mounting bracket to the ceiling pan can fail. Although no injuries have been reported, the firm has received six reports of fixtures falling.
Manufactured in China, and sold at electrical and lighting distributors nationwide from January 2007 through November 2007 for about $200, this recall involves only Progress Lighting ceiling mounted outdoor light fixtures
with model numbers P5526-20 and P5526-44. You can find the model number written on the product packaging.
To schedule a free repair of the lighting fixture, consumers can contact Progress Lighting at (866) 418-5543 or visit their website at www.progresslighting.com
