Potential Shock Hazard Prompts Voluntary Recall of LED Lights
A line of LED lights is being recalled due to a shock hazard.
Technical Consumer Products (TCP) is issuing the decision for its line of 5-inch and 6-inch LED Downlight retrofits for recessed cans. The internal wiring in these products can contact the downlight's metal trim, posing a shock hazard to consumers.
These replacement downlights are white and produce a soft white (2700 Kelvin) or bright white (5000 Kelvin) color temperature. Affected units have item number "CD611LC" and the date code printed directly on the black base of the lamp. Consumers will need to shut off power to the lights and disengage the lamp to check the item number and date code. "Connected automated home lighting system" is printed on the product packaging, along with the item number, UPC code and date code.
For more information on how to identify if your product is subject to recall, visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website.
TCP is recalling about 25,000 lights. The product was sold at Home Depot stores and electrical distributors nationwide and online from June 2014 through June 2015 for about $35. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately contact TCP to receive a free replacement lamp with installation instructions. Customers with questions can contact the company at (800) 397-2864.
