February 16, 2000TSI Prime Inc. Recalls Ceiling
Coppell, 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.
