Ceiling mounted light fixtures

Company: Thomas Lighting

Quantity: 83,750

Why? 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.

What models? There are 28 models of ceiling flush-mounted light fixtures with a diameter ranging from 7.5 to 13 inches. All fixtures have a round base or canopy affixed to the ceiling and a dome- or cylindrical-shaped cover. They have a variety of finishes and contain one, two or three lightbulbs. Canopies are in a range of colors. Most models have a nib in the center of the dome cover in the same color as the canopy.

Where sold? Various stores.
