PhotoBose Corporation of Framingham, Mass., is recalling about 77,500 professional use flush and surface mount loudspeakers.

The loudspeaker’s mounting components can break causing the speakers to dislodge and fall from their installed location, posing an injury hazard.

The firm has received nine reports in the U.S. of speakers dislodging or falling from their installed locations, including one report of minor injuries.

This recall involves FreeSpace DS40F in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers manufactured before August 13, 2018, and all FreeSpace and EdgeMax in-ceiling/flush-mount loudspeakers installed in commercial cooking environments.

The loudspeakers were sold in black and white with “Bose” engraved on the front of them. Model numbers and the date of manufacturing can be found on the label on the back of the loudspeaker.

These professional loudspeakers were sold by Bose through authorized Bose resellers to commercial purchasers, not at retail to consumers, although affected loudspeakers may have been installed in commercial spaces open to the public.

The following names and model numbers are being recalled:
