RECALL: Comotti 3- and 4-light mirror tinted glass vanities from The Home Depot
By Anthony Capkun
June 29, 2017 – Both Health Canada and the U.S. CPSC are reporting a recall involving Home Decorators Collection 3-light and 4-light Comotti vanity fixtures due to burn and laceration hazards.
The light shades can be overtightened, which can cause them to detach and fall, posing a laceration and burn hazard.
The fixtures have three or four chrome-coloured glass shades that contain clear acrylic ball strands surrounding a halogen light. The wallplate is made of reflective stainless steel.
As of June 29, 2017, Design Solutions International has received no reports of falling lamp shades in Canada, and no reports of injuries. In the United States, however, the company has received 108 reports of light shades falling, including one report of a laceration to the head that also involved a laceration and burn to the arm, and one report of a laceration to the leg.
The following product model numbers and SKUs are included in this recall:
• 3-light: Model 17004, SKU 1000862151
• 4-light: Model 17005, SKU 1000862152
This recall involves about 5150 units sold exclusively at Home Depot stores in Canada (and online) and about 64,200 in the States. They were sold from July 2016 to March 2017 in Canada, and from December 2014 to March 2017 in the U.S.
The units were manufactured in China for Design Solutions International, and imported by The Home Depot of Canada Inc.
Consumers should stop using the affected products and contact Design Solutions International to receive free replacement light shades and instructions. Call 800-388-6141 or visit them online.
