August 29, 2012 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission—in cooperation with Cooper Lighting—announced a voluntary recall of some of the latter’s All-Pro shower light trim, which involves over 50,000 units in the United States. (It is unknown at this time whether any were distributed in Canada.) Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The shower light’s trim and glass lens can fall from the ceiling fixture, posing an impact and laceration hazard to consumers. Cooper Lighting has received 407 reports of trim pieces falling and breaking, including laceration injuries to a consumer’s head and foot when struck by the light’s trim and lens as they fell from the ceiling fixture.
The recall involves All-Pro shower light trim models ERT701, RE-ERT 701, ERT702 and ERT703 with a glass lens and date codes 347 11 through 119 12. The model number and date code are marked on underside of the portion of the trim facing the ceiling. The trim is used with light fixtures shown in graphic (courtesy CPSC).
The units were manufactured in China.
Consumers should contact Cooper Lighting immediately to receive free replacement trim for the shower light at (800) 954-7228 between 8 am and 5 pm ET Monday through Friday, or visit Cooper Lighting’s RECALL page.
