Pictures identifying the affected product are seen below.
Reason for Recall
The lamps are being recalled because there is a potential for the metal housing and assembly portion of the LED bulb to separate from the plastic driver housing installed in the lighting fixture, which could result in the product falling from the ceiling, presenting possible risk of property damage or injury to anyone standing under the fixture. To date, Halco is unaware of any injuries involving the Subject Product or of any fires. Nonetheless, in an abundance of caution, Halco is voluntarily recalling and replacing all Subject Products free of charge in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
