Risk of Falling Chandeliers Results in Nationwide Recall

Roughly 9,600 chandelier lights have been recalled, after multiple reports were received of the metal and glass fixtures breaking away from the ceiling mount, posing a laceration and injury hazard to bystanders. 

A Sea Gull light chandelier recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 5, following at least four incidents where chandeliers fell from the ceiling, causing at least $1,600 in property damage.

While there have been no reports of injury associated with the falling chandeliers, this could result in catastrophic injury or death if individuals are under or around the lights when they fall..

The CPSC and Sea Gull Lighting Products, LLC indicate that the screw collars that holds the chandeliers to the ceiling mount can break and fall. If struck by one of the metal and glass fixtures that can measure up to roughly 50 inches long, people could suffer severe lacerations and trauma injuries.

The recall includes seven different models of the Sea Gull Lighting chandeliers including Brandywine, Laurel Leaf, New Verona, Newport, Parkview, Roslyn, and Somerton. The chandeliers are composed of a metal framing with various finishes and two or three tiers of glass shades. The products measure between 27 and 50 inches wide and 26 to 46 inches high depending on the model.

The recalled chandeliers were manufactured in China under Sea Gull Lighting Products, LLC, of Stokie, Illinois where they were shipped for sale to Aztec Electric Supply, Ferguson, Lowe’s, State Electric Supply, and Wesco stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com, and other various online retailers from November 2006 through August 2013 for between $250 and $750.

The CPSC estimates about 8,800 of the units were sold in the Unites States and another 800 were sold in Canada.

The CPSC recommends that consumers with recalled Sea Gull chandeliers prevent household members from going into the immediate area under the chandeliers and contact Sea Gull Lighting immediately at 888-475-1136 or visit them online at www.seagulllighting.com to receive either a free replacement chandelier if the prior one fell and broke or for free replacement hardware to repair the chandeliers screw collar. The manufacturer will reimburse customers for all shipping and installation costs. Customers may also email the manufacturer are seagullproducts@seagulllighting.com.
