Distributor Cooper Lighting LLC, of Peachtree City, Georgia, has recalled about 5,000 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Chain Sets Sold with Metalux Light Fixtures, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
An â€œSâ€ hook on the chain connecting the fixture to the ceiling can straighten when subjected to high impact forces, resulting in the light fixture falling. This poses an injury hazard to consumers. To date, the firm has received three reports of light fixtures having one chain detached or the fixture falling. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the AYC or HBAYC model chain set for use in a gymnasium or similar recreational facility with one of the following Metalux commercial light fixtures: F-Bay HB/2HB; F-Bay 2HBHD; F-Bay HBE; F-Bay HBHT; F-Bay HBI; F-Bay HBL; F-Bay 2HE Series 2HE; Arctic Bay AB; or Arctic Bay ABI.
The recalled Chain Sets Sold with Metalux Light Fixtures, which were manufactured in the United States, were sold at authorized distributors nationwide from May 2006 through March 2010 for between $1.50 and $3.
The CPSC is advising consumers to contact Cooper Lighting immediately for free replacement â€œSâ€ hooks for all fixtures located within gymnasiums and similar recreational facilities. Maintenance personnel in these facilities should inspect the fixtures immediately and take down any units with straightened â€œSâ€ hooks. Cooper Lighting can be reached toll-free at (800) 954-7228 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, or at the firmâ€™s Web site at http://www.metalux-lighting.com/.
