Health Canada recalls Progress pendant-style ceiling mounted indoor light fixtures

The recall, which involves 386 affected units in Canada, was issued because the hang-straight ceiling mount assembly that supports the light fixture could fail, causing the fixture to fall unexpectedly. The mount assembly makes it easier to install the fixture on a ceiling that is not horizontally level.

Progress Lighting of Greenville, S.C., which distributes the product, has received three reports of fixtures failing. There have been no reports of injuries.

The recall involves only the following specific models of pendant-style ceiling mounted indoor light fixtures: P3601-09, P3602-09, P3603-09, P3603-09EXP, P3685-09, P3685-09EXP, P4260-09, P4261-09, P4261-09EXP and P4262-09. The product number is located inside the canopy located flush with the ceiling. The fixtures have frosted white glass and a brushed aluminum finish.

Consumers are advised to remove the glass from the fixture carefully. Consumers should contact the company to schedule a free inspection and replacement at no charge. For more information, consumers may contact Progress Lighting toll-free at (866) 418-5543 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday

The light fixtures, manufactured in China, were distributed from January 2005 to May 2008.
