Flos is recalling 2,900 pendant light fixtures due to a risk of injury.

The dome on the light fixture can detach and fall unexpectedly, posing a risk of injury from impact.

This recall involves the Flos Skygarden halogen pendant light fixtures with models S1 and S2. The model number is printed on a label on the lightbulb socket. The light fixtures are made of glass, gypsum and steel. They have a gold, brown, black or white dome with a white plaster interior. Skygarden model S1 domes measure about 24 inches in diameter while the Skygarden model S2 dome measures about 35 inches in diameter.

The fixtures were sold at Design Within Reach, Flos Project Sales, Lumens, and other lighting stores and online from January 2008 through July 2016 for between $2,500 and $4,400.

Although there have been no injuries or incidents related to this recall reported to date, consumers should contact the firm or place of purchase to schedule the installation of a free repair kit by a qualified technician. In the meantime, they should prevent people from going into the immediate area under the fixtures until repaired.

For more information, consumers can reach Flos at (888) 952-9541.
