Lithonia Lighting of Conyers, Ga, is recalling about 330,000 CFMK surface mount brackets used with CPANL LEDs.

The brackets can fail to securely surface mount the CPANL LED and fall unexpectedly, posing a risk of injury from impact.

The firm has received 24 reports of CPANL LEDs coming loose or falling from the CFMK Bracket, resulting in one injury.

This recall involves metal CFMK H-Brackets that are screwed into the ceiling and used to surface mount CPANL LED fixtures.

The bracket was included as an optional mounting accessory with 1x4, 2x4 and 2x2 CPANLs sold by retailers and was available as a separate accessory for CPANL LEDs sold by commercial distributors.

The brackets, manufactured in China, were sold at Lowe’s Stores and other home improvement stores nationwide and online at Lowes.com from August 2018, through June 2020, for CFMK Brackets included with CPANL LEDs for between $85 and $100, and commercial electrical distributors from January 2019, through June 2020, for CFMK brackets as a separate accessory for commercial CPANL LED applications for about $12.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using CPANL LEDs surface mounted with a CFMK bracket and contact Lithonia Lighting for a free CFMK bracket repair kit. Consumers should prevent people from going into the immediate area under the fixtures until the brackets are repaired.
