Outdoor Lighting Fixtures Recalled for Shock Hazard

American Electric Lighting, a division of Acuity Brands Lighting Inc. of Conyers, Ga., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a voluntary product safety recall for about 900 outdoor lighting fixtures because improper wiring in the light fixtures poses a shock hazard. CPSC says consumers should stop using the products immediately and contact American Electric Lighting to schedule a free inspection and repair.

The recall involves model AVL outdoor lighting fixtures. The light fixtures are intended for use in parking lots, roadways, commercial environments, and office communities. “AVL” is printed on the reflector of each light fixture. The units were sold by electrical distributors and electrical sales representatives nationwide from September 2008 through September 2009 for between $250 and $800.

The company has received no reports of incidents or injuries from the light fixtures. For more information, call the company at (800) 754-0463 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.americanelectriclighting.com.
