1.2 million rechargeable lights recalled due to fire hazard – KIRO 7 News Seattle

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of more than 1.2 million rechargeable lights manufactured by Good Earth.

The lamp battery may overheat and cause the plastic housing to catch fire.

One person died and another had to be treated for smoke inhalation after the light overheated and caught fire. There were nine reports of heating lights and six cases causing fires, the CPSC said.

The following model numbers are part of the recall:

The number is on a sticker on the back of the lamp, which is about 12 inches long and is sold in packs of one or two with a charging cord and with or without a remote control or power adapter.

They were available in a variety of colors including white, silver, almond, black and rose gold.

The lights were sold in stores across the country, including Lowe's, Ace Hardware, Meijer and Menards. They were also sold online on the Good Earth Lighting website, on Amazon and QVC from October 2017 to January 2024, priced at $20 for one light or $35 for the two-pack.

If you own the lights, you are asked to stop using them immediately and contact Good Earth Lighting for a free replacement.

You can contact the company by phone at 800-291-8838 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT, by email, or online.

You will need to write the date and initial it next to the model number and “recalled” on the front of the fixture. Next, you will need to take a photo of it and upload it to the company's website.

In addition to the 1.2 million lamps sold in the United States, another 37,800 lamps were sold in Canada, the CPSC said.
