Lighting Fixtures Sold At Home Depot Recalled Due To Fire And Burn Hazards
Lighting fixtures sold only at Home Depot stores were recalled this week because the halogen bulbs sold with them can melt parts of the fixtures, posing a fire or burn risk.
According to WPRI 12, the recall includes about 10,500 Hampton Bay 3-Light Crystal Chandeliers and Home Decorators Collection 4-Light Crystal Chandeliers manufactured by Lumicentro Internacional, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The CPSC said there have been 39 reports of plastic on the unit burning and melting, wires burning or overheating, and one report of the unit catching fire. No injuries or property damage has been reported.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled fixtures and contact Lumicentro Internacional for a free upgrade kit. The company can be reached toll-free at 888-356-6430 during standard business hours.”
