CEILING MOUNTED LIGHT FIXTURES About 83,750 Thomas Lighting ceiling flush mount light fixtures sold at electrical distributors and lighting wholesalers nationwide from July 2010 through July 2011 for between $19 and $50 as Thomas Lighting products. The fixture's socket wire insulation can degrade, leading to charged wires becoming exposed, causing electricity to pass to the metal canopy of the fixture. This poses a fire and electric shock hazard to consumers. Thomas Lighting has received 11 reports of defective fixtures which resulted in the home's Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) tripping. No injuries have been reported to the firm.
IF YOU OWN ONE Contact Thomas Lighting at 800-764-0756 to arrange for a free in-home repair of the fixtures by a qualified electrician.
STROLLERS About 36,000 Kolcraft Contours Options three- and four-wheeled strollers sold at juvenile product specialty stores and online at Amazon.com, Target.com and ToysRUs.com from January 2006 and June 2012 for between $150 and $160. A child or consumer’s finger can become caught in the opening formed when locking and unlocking the hinge mechanism which is used to adjust the handlebars on the strollers. This presents an amputation and laceration hazard to children and the adults handling the stroller. Kolcraft and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have received five reports of injuries involving the hinge mechanism, including reports of three children whose fingertips were amputated and two adults whose fingers were either smashed or lacerated.
