HeathCo is recalling approximately 223,000 motion-activated outdoor light fixtures. The internal fixture wiring can energize the entire surface and fittings of the fixture, posing an electrical shock hazard.

This recall includes multiple Heath/Zenith Motion Activated Outdoor Lights used for porch lighting. The product comes in 21 designs with a variety of finishes and is designed to turn on at night when motion is detected. The product replaces a standard outdoor wall-mounted light fixture.

The brand name and model number can be found on a label located on the back of the motion sensor for wall-mounted models, or underneath the motion sensor cover for ceiling-mounted models.

The recalled light fixtures were sold at large home improvement retailers, lighting, electrical and other retail stores nationwide and online from December 2006 to July 2013.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lights and turn off the power switch before removing the light from its mounting. Contact the company for instructions on how to return the light fixture and receive a free replacement.
