Risk of fire prompts light fixture recall

Posted on February 11, 2016 2:28 pm under Product Liability

According to a notice released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on January 28, Longfellow lighting fixtures were recalled by Varaluz LLC due to the discovery that improper wiring may result in the melting of the insulation and cause the light to short out. This serious defect could lead to fires, burn injuries, and electric shock risks to the consumers. Although no injuries were reported to the company, there have been two cases of the light bulbs shorting out.

Eighty units of the Longfellow lighting are affected by the recall, including the 3- and 4-light fixtures that may be used indoors or outdoors. The affected model numbers are: 731KL04EB, 731KM03EB, 731P03EB, 331P03BL, 731P03EB, and 331P04BL.

Consumers were advised by the company to stop using the faulty lighting fixtures. The company may be contacted for replacements or refunds.
