Cooper Lighting Recalls Emergency and Exit Lights

Cooper Lighting Inc., of Peachtree City, Ga., in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling approximately 9,000 of its "Sure-Lite" and "AtLite" Exit and Emergency Lights. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The lights can malfunction and not stay illuminated in the event of a power failure. This could result in a failure to provide adequate lighting to guide building occupants to an exit in an emergency. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recalled emergency and exit lights are installed in commercial buildings such as hotels and office buildings, and include the following model numbers (which are written on the inside of the removable front cover):
