Company Recalls 68,000 Light Fixtures Due to Fire Hazards
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
L.D. Kichler is recalling over 68,000
ceiling fixtures due to the possibility of fire hazards. The Krystal Ice ceiling fixtures
were sold with a 40-watt halogen bulb which can burn too hot for the electrical
wires in the ceiling. This can pose a fire hazard especially in homes
that contain older wiring. The company states that the recall pertains
to four style numbers of the flush mount fixtures. Fortunately, there
have not been any injuries, and the company suggests that consumers should
stop using the product and contact them for a free lower-watt bulb replacement.
Consumers that live in homes built before 1985 and do not have upgrade
wiring can receive a full refund. They also suggest if you are not sure
if your wiring has been upgraded to contact the company regarding an inspection.
Product liability laws are put in place to keep consumer safe from potential
product defects. Every year there are millions of products recalled in
the United States. These range from consumer products, vehicles, boats,
food, and drink. It is important to remember that product recalls do not
expire. This is especially important for products that you buy second
hand or that are gifted to you. Recalled products can cause serious harm
which can result in major medical bills to the consumer. Always contact
an experienced product liability lawyer if you have been injured due to
a faulty product.
