The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of about 1,000 Progress brand outdoor ceiling light fixtures due to a safety hazard. The importer of the Chinese-made product, Progress Lighting of Greenville, South Carolina, initiated the voluntary recall after learning a weld that affixes a mounting bracket to the ceiling pan can fail, causing the fixture to fall and possibly injure people. Progress Lighting said it has received six reports of fixtures falling. Only Progress Lighting ceiling-mounted outdoor light fixtures with model numbers P5526-20 and P5526-44 are included in the recall. The light fixtures have three flame-shaped lights inside a beveled glass and solid frame. “Made in/Hecho En/Fabrique Aux China” and the model numbers are printed on the packaging. The light fixtures were sold nationwide from January through November 2007 for about $200. Consumers can contact Progress Lighting at 866-418-5543 to schedule a free repair.
