Sea Gull Lighting Has Recalled Ceiling Light Fixtures

The CPSC has released the following information:
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Ceiling Light Fixtures

Units: About 7,100

Distributor: Sea Gull Lighting Inc., of Riverside, N.J.

Hazard: The wiring in the lights can short, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Sea Gull has received two reports of the fixtures shorting out, though there have been no reports of fire or injuries.

Description: The recalled ceiling-mounted light fixtures come in six different models - 5359-01, 5359-02, 5359-15, 5370-15, 5370-98, and 5372-02 - which can only be accurately identified on the packaging or receipts. The white glass lights have an antique brass, polished brass, white, or brushed stainless finish and do not have any exposed screws. The light fixture is twisted into the base and locks in place. Because the light fixtures have no visible label or identifying marks on the outside, consumers are advised to look at the photo above or contact the company for more information.

Sold at: Electrical supply dealers and contractors sold and installed the fixtures from July 2002 through February 2003. These fixtures were not sold at retail stores.

Manufactured in: China.

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the lights immediately and contact the Sea Gull Lighting dealer from whom the light fixtures were purchased or the company, to receive a free replacement fixture.

Consumer Contact: Call Sea Gull Lighting at (800) 347-5483 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit its website at www.seagulllighting.com.
