Curio Design has issued a recall for approximately 1,500 of its modular light fixtures. The modular lamp pieces can crack during assembly and the lamp bases have faulty wires, posing a shock and fire hazard.

This recall involves three Splyt Light modules including the Table Starter Kits, Hanging Starter Kits, Expansion Kits, and Tri-bases. The kits let you design your own light fixture by adding or subtracting Y-pieces and candelabra bulbs. The lights can be screwed directly into a light socket in the ceiling or used with the table base. The kits include large and small Y-shaped fixtures, a round-metal base and 8X10 watt globe E12 light bulbs.

To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled lights and contact the firm to receive a free replacement lamp or a full refund. Curio Design is contacting all known customers directly.

The recalled modular lights were sold at Kickstarter, SFMOMA, UncommonGoods, and other specialty shops nationwide and online from April 2016 through November 2016 for between $65 and $115.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about this recall can contact Curio Design at (510) 863-0150.
