About 450 LHQM LED Exit Signs with Emergency Lights have been recalled by Best Lighting Products, of Pataskala, Ohio, and Lithonia Lighting, a division of Acuity Brands Lighting Inc. of Conyers, Ga. The fixtures can malfunction and fail to illuminate in the event of a power failure. This could result in a failure to provide adequate lighting to guide building occupants to an exit in the event of an emergency. There were ten reports of signs malfunctioning during testing after installation. No injuries were reported. The recalled exit signs have emergency lights fixed at either end with “EXIT” in red or green in the center. The fixtures are installed in commercial buildings, such as hotels and office buildings. Affected model numbers can be found on a label affixed inside the fixture housing and on the outside of the packaging, and include: LHQM LED G M6, LHQM LED R M6 and LHQM LED R HO M6.
Affected models have the following date codes on the inside fixture housing: 1003S10, 1004S10 or 1005S10. Dates on the packaging carton include any calendar dates in March, April or May 2010. The lights were sold by authorized distributors nationwide from January 2011 through May 2011 for $100 to $200. Consumers should contact Lithonia Lighting for a free replacement product.
