About 400,000 Commercial Luminaires Recalled

This recall involves Lithonia Lighting BLT series luminaires intended for use in indoor commercial applications, such as office buildings, schools, and stores.

Approximately 380,000 units of the BLT series of Lithonia Lighting's commercial luminaires are being recalled because the plastic lens on the luminaire can detach and fall unexpectedly, which poses a risk of injury from impact. Lithonia Lighting has received 107 reports of plastic lenses falling from the luminaire but no injuries have been reported, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated in its Nov. 8 announcement of the recall.

This recall involves Lithonia Lighting BLT series luminaires intended for use in indoor commercial applications, such as office buildings, schools, and stores. The low-profile, recessed LED luminaire is a metal light fixture in a white finish with a rounded or square plastic lens. The fixtures measure about 1, 2, or 4 feet long and 1, 1.5, or 2 feet wide. Only non-sensor luminaires with a manufacture date from October 2015 through August 2016 are included in this recall. Lithonia Lighting and the model and date of manufacture can be found on a label attached to the fixture's housing and on the product packaging. The date code on the fixture's housing's label is in a MM/DD/YY format. The date code on the packaging is in a YYYY/MM/DD format.

To contact the company, call 844-675-2339 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time weekdays or visit www.lithonia.com and click on BLT Recall on the left side of the page for more information.

Consumers are asked to remove the lens and contact Lithonia Lighting to receive a free repair kit to secure the original lens; they should prevent people from going into the immediate area under the fixtures until the lenses are removed or the luminaires are repaired, according to the announcement. A video showing proper lens removal and installation of the repair kit is available at www.lithonia.com/bltvideo.

The products were sold at lighting and electrical supply distributors nationwide and online at 1000Bulbs.com, Amazon.com, ATGStores.com, Build.com, HD.com, ShineRetrofits.com, and Wayfair.com from October 2015 through August 2016 for between $150 and $250.
