Cooper Lighting, LLC has recalled about 362,000 All-Pro and Defiant solar-powered outdoor LED light fixtures because their batteries can overheat and cause the light fixture's housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.

Cooper Lighting, LLC has recalled about 362,000 All-Pro and Defiant solar-powered outdoor LED light fixtures because their batteries can overheat and cause the light fixture's housing to melt, posing a fire hazard, the company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission recently announced. About 350,000 were sold in the United States, along with about 11,963 that were sold in Canada.

The recall, conducted voluntarily by the company under CPSC's Fast Track Recall process, involves solar-powered, motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures sold under the All-Pro and Defiant brands. The model number is displayed on the interior of the fixture. The Defiant MST1000LWDF, All-Pro MST800L, and All-Pro MST800LW all have two light sources on top of a housing with a round motion sensor on the bottom of that housing. The All-Pro WPS2040M has a flat housing with the LED light source in the center of the housing and an integrated motion sensor lens and dimmer above the motion sensor. All of the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel.

Cooper Lighting is a division of Eaton. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lighting fixtures and contact the Eaton Customer Service Center for a free replacement battery pack. Eaton will ship the replacement battery pack with step-by-step battery replacement instructions.

Cooper Lighting has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage, according to CPSC. No injuries have been reported.
