Cooper Lighting of Peachtree City, Ga., a division of Eaton, is recalling about 362,000 All-Pro and Defiant solar-powered outdoor LED light fixtures sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The batteries in the solar-powered light fixtures can overheat and cause the light fixture’s housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.
The company has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage. No injuries have been reported.
This recall 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 the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel.
The light fixtures, manufactured in China, were sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, and other stores nationwide from September 2015, through July 2018, for about $70 to $100.
