Dolan Designs is recalling approximately 8,000 ceiling-mounted light fixtures. The fixture's socket wire insulation can degrade and lead to charged wires becoming exposed, causing electricity to pass to the metal canopy of the fixture. This poses a fire and electric shock hazard to consumers.

This recall involves round ceiling-mounted light fixtures sold in satin nickel, bronze, polished brass, antique brass, white, or bronze finishes with a domed white or amber glass shade. The light fixtures are 14 inches in diameter and 5.75 inches high and have two sockets marked 'BO AN' which take 75 watt bulbs.

The 16 recalled light fixtures were sold as Dolan Designs models 502-30, 522-09, 522-14, 522-18, 522-22, 522-30, 522-32, 522-60, 522-78, 5332-133, 5372-66, 5372-78, 5382-20, 5382-55, 5382-100, and 5392-20. The brand name and model number are on the inside of the fixture pan, visible when the glass shade is removed.

The light fixtures were sold at Builders Lighting, Globe Lighting, Seattle Lighting and other lighting showrooms nationwide and online at between September 2008 and October 2009.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled light fixtures and return them to the place of purchase to obtain a free replacement fixture, or contact Dolan Designs to schedule a free in-home repair.
