PetSmart recalls strip lights for reptile cages

PetSmart recalls strip lights for reptile cages due to the strip light’s fluorescent bulb can overheat causing the hood on the light fixture to ignite, posing a fire hazard.

This recall involves 20 inch and 30 inch All Living Things reptile strip light fixtures. These light fixtures simulate natural daylight and are attached to the top of the reptile’s terrarium.  The 20 inch fixture has UPC number 73725773305 and the 30 inch fixture has UPC number 73725773306 printed on the packaging. 

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled light fixtures and return them to any PetSmart store for a full refund. 

Consumers can contact PetSmart toll-free at 888-839-9638 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or online at www.petsmart.com and click on “Recalls” for more information.

The reptile lights were sold at PetSmart stores nationwide from March 2017 through July 2018 for about $35 (20 inch) and $40 (30 inch).
