Exit/Emergency Lights Recalled for Performance During Power Failure
Cooper Lighting Inc., of Peachtree City, Ga., is recalling about 9,000 “Sure-Lite” and “AtLite” Exit and Emergency Lights. 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.
The recalled emergency and exit lights, sold to authorized distributors nationwide from September 2007 through June 2008, are installed in commercial buildings such as hotels and office buildings. Distributors resold and installed the lights for between $200 and $500.
