PhotoCurio Design of Culver City, Calif., is recalling about 1,500 modular light kits and bases.

The modular lamp pieces can crack during assembly and the lamp bases have faulty wires, posing a shock and fire hazard.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves three Splyt Light modules including the Table Starter Kits, Hanging Starter Kits, Expansion Kits and Tri-bases. The kits let you design your own light fixture by adding or subtracting Y-pieces and candelabra bulbs.

The lights can be screwed directly into a light socket in the ceiling or used with the table base. The kits include large and small Y-shaped fixtures, a round-metal base and 8X10 watt globe E12 light bulbs.

The modular light kits and bases, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold at Kickstarter, SFMOMA, UncommonGoods and other specialty shops nationwide and online at and from April 2016, through November 2016, for between $65 and $115.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled lights and contact the firm to receive a free replacement lamp or a full refund. Curio Design is contacting all known consumers directly.

Consumers may contact Curio Design at 510- 863-0150 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday through Friday, by email at or online at for more information.
