Light Fixture Ceiling Supports Recalled Due to Injury Hazard
Cooper Crouse-Hinds has announced a recall of roughly 22,400 ceiling boxes designed to support ceiling light fixtures. The ceiling box can crack causing the light fixture to fall from the ceiling, posing an impact hazard to consumers.
This recall involves five models of Cooper Crouse-Hinds non-metallic, polycarbonate ceiling boxes with manufacturer or part numbers TP16002, TP16022, TP16023, TP16122 and TP16307. The black, round ceiling boxes are 1.5 to 2.25-inches deep and measure between 3.5 and 4-inches in diameter. These devices are used in the installation of ceiling lighting. 'CROUSE-HINDS' and '14.8 CU. IN' or '20.8 CU. IN.' appear inside the box. The part number is on the product's packaging.
The recalled products were sold at electrical supply stores and sales to commercial contractors, professional installers and other end users by authorized distributers nationwide from December 2012 to April 2013.
Consumers should immediately contact Cooper Crouse-Hinds to determine if their product is recalled and whether they will receive a full refund, a free replacement, or a free repair of the ceiling box.
