TSI Prime Inc. Recalls Ceiling Lights

TSI Prime Inc. Recalls Ceiling LightsCoppell, TX (SafetyAlerts) - TSI Prime Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 126,000 ceiling-mounted light fixtures because the light fixtures can short circuit, posing a fire hazard.

TSI Prime has received three reports of these light fixtures short circuiting, resulting in scorch marks on ceilings. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves a four-bulb, flush-mount ceiling light fixture. The fixture has an eight-sided glass and brass enclosure. A sticker on the fixture near the base of one of the light sockets reads, "MADE IN CHINA," and "E181045."  If the light fixture has the E181045 number, call TSI Prime for information to determine if it is part of the recall.

Wal-Mart and Lowe's stores nationwide sold the light fixtures for between $16 and $25. Wal-Mart sold the fixtures individually packaged from February 1998 through March 1999. Lowe's sold the fixtures in two- packs from January 1998 through January 2000.

Consumers should stop using these lights immediately, and call TSI Prime to arrange for a free replacement. For more information, call TSI Prime toll-free at (877) 317-9237 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
