Solar battery-powered light fixtures recalled

The Journal Gazette

Cooper Lighting LLC of Peachtree City, Georgia, has recalled certain solar-powered, motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures, saying the batteries can overheat and cause the light fixture's housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.

The company, a division of Eaton, has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement. No injuries have been reported.

The All-Pro and Defiant brand fixtures were sold at Home Depot, Lowe's and other stores from September 2015 through July 2018 for about $70 to $100, the statement said.

It said consumers should stop using the recalled fixtures and contact the Eaton Customer Service Center for a free replacement battery pack, which Eaton will ship with step-by-step battery replacement instructions.

For more information, the company can be reached toll-free at 866-461-7819 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fort Wayne time weekdays, by email at LT-consumerreplacements@eaton.com or online at www.cooperlighting.com and click on "safety notices" under the resources tab.
