Perfecto Recalls "SHOlights" for Aquariums

Shock and Fire HazardNoblesville, IN (SafetyAlerts) - Perfecto Manufacturing Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 23,400 SHOlights aquarium lights. Sharp edges on these lights could cut the insulation on the wiring. If the wires become exposed, consumers could suffer shocks or electrocution. There is also a risk of fire. In addition, some of these lights could overheat and cause the same problems.

Perfecto is not aware of any incidents involving these aquarium lights. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The plastic body of the SHOlights are black or oak colored, and are 24, 30, 36 or 48 inches in length. All 36-inch SHOlights that hold two bulbs, and all SHOlights lights manufactured in July 1999 or earlier are part of this recall. The manufacturing date is located on a white label on the metal reflector. The label shows a picture of an anchor, and reads "cleaned by" or "built by" followed by the date. If there is no label or the label can't be read, it should be considered part of the recall.

Pet stores nationwide sold these lights from August 1998 through July 1999 for a suggested retail price of between $125 to $175.

Consumers should stop using these aquarium lights, unplug them, and return them to Perfecto for a free replacement. For more information, consumers should call Perfecto at (800) 241-7485 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.
