WASHINGTON (WKOW) – Safety officials announce a recall involving outdoor wall mount lanterns over fire, burn and shock concerns.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says about 99,700 outdoor wall mount lanterns are being recalled because an electrical short circuit can occur in the lantern's internal wiring, posing a risk of fire, burn and electric shock to consumers. The recalled products were sold under the Bel Air Lighting, Inc. brand.
Bel Air Lighting says no injuries have been reported, but there have been seven reports of incidents, including two reports of lanterns catching fire.
The lanterns were sold at Lowe's stores, in lighting showrooms nationwide and at Lowes.com from June 2006 through May 2012.
If you have a recalled lantern, stop using it and contact Bel Air Lighting, by phone at 1-888-770-7018 or online, for a free replacement.
