Home Depot Light Fixture Recall Issued Following Injury Reports

More than 64,000 vanity light fixtures sold exclusively at Home Depot have been recalled, following numerous reports of the fixtures unexpectedly falling, resulting in lacerations and burn injuries. 

The Home Depot light fixture recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 29, after more than 100 consumer complaints were received that indicate the glass shades of the devices detached.

The recalled vanity fixtures pose a risk for consumers, as the chrome-colored glass shades may break away from the wall plate, allowing the glass pieces to fall over counters or sinks, shattering the glass shades and halogen bulbs in the direction of those nearby.

According to the CPSC recall notice, Home Depot has received reports of the shades falling and shattering, including one reported laceration to the head, a laceration to the leg, and one burn injury from the hot, shattering halogen bulbs.

The recall includes Home Decorators Collection 3-Light and 4-Light Comotti Vanity Fixtures that are equipped with three or four chrome-colored glass shades with clear acrylic ball strands that surround a halogen light. The light fixtures are affixed to a reflective, stainless steel back plate.

The fixtures were manufactured in China under Home Depot Product Authority, LLC, of Atlanta, Georgia. They were distributed for sale exclusively to Home Depot stores nationwide, and also sold online at homedepot.com from December 2014 through March 2017 for between $95 and $110.

The CPSC recommends that customers with the recalled Home Depot vanity fixtures stop using them immediately and contact Design Solutions International at 800-388-6141 or email them at customersupport@dsilighting.com for information on how to receive free replacement light shades with replacement instructions.
