LEDVANCE of Wilmington, Mass., is recalling about 56,000 SYLVANIA recessed canister light kits sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The kits can short circuit, posing a shock and electrocution hazard when consumers try to troubleshoot flickering lights.
The firm has received three reports of consumers being shocked by the recalled canister lights. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves SYLVANIA RT56HO 900 lumen recessed canister light kits with Batch 0 following a five digit code, for example 75137-0, printed on the back of the white rim and on the product’s packaging.
