Lithonia Lighting is recalling 5,600 LED light fixtures due to an impact hazard.

The fixture's plastic diffuser lens may unexpectedly detach and fall, posing an injury hazard from the impact.

The affected fixtures include the Lithonia Lighting LBL4W model ceiling light fixtures used indoors in commercial locations, such as office buildings, schools, closets, hallways, and stairwells. They are painted white metal and are roughly four feet long with a low profile and a curved diffuser cover (lens). This lens measures four feet long by 15 inches wide.

Only those fixtures manufactured between February 2016 and March 2017 are affected by this recall. A label attached to the product's housing includes the brand name Lithonia Lighting, the model number, and the manufacture date, which is in MM/DD/YY format.

The fixtures were sold across the country by electrical distributors as well as online at 1000Bulbs.Com, Amazon, ATGStores.Com, Build.Com, HD.Com, ShineRetrofits.Com, and Wayfair.Com. They were sold from February 2016 until March 2017 for between $150 and $200.

To date, the company has gotten six reports of either loose or falling lenses, though no injuries have been reported. For this reason, consumers are urged to take the lens off the fixture and contact the company for a free lens. No one should walk under the fixtures until the lens has been replaced.

For more information, consumers can reach Lithonia Lighting at (888) 876-4181.
