FontanaArte Corp. is issuing a recall for unsafe light fixtures.

The company is voluntarily recalling its Sonmi pendant lamp light fixtures. The glass shade disc on the light fixture can detach and fall, posing a risk of injury from impact. In addition, broken glass can pose a laceration hazard. About 100 units are subject to the recall.

The fixtures have a round base suspended mount, a central bowl-shaped glass shade, and a lower 39 inch disc-shaped glass shade. The fixture is supported by either a single stem or three metal cables. The fixtures have a round matte-white pendant mount and model number M3748 printed on a label affixed to the mount. The central bowl and lower disc-shaped glass shades come in white or red. A special order fixture, with model number SPM3748, was sold with a round matte white mount and a 46 inch disc-shaped tempered glass shade. The company uses letters M, S, or V as prefixes in order to identify the mount, the bowl and the glass.

These fixtures were sold at lighting stores and by individual designers nationwide from January 2008 through June 2015 for about $4,000.

FontanaArte has received one report of a glass lamp shade detaching and falling. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately remove the glass shade from the light fixture and contact FontanaArte to arrange to have the fixture professionally repaired free in their home.
