PhotoLumicentro Internacional S.A., of Panama is recalling about 10,500 crystal chandeliers.

The halogen bulbs sold with the chandeliers can melt parts of the fixture, posing fire and burn hazards.

There have been 39 reports of plastic on the unit burning and melting, wires burned, or overheating in the 4-Light Chandelier and one report of the unit catching fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

This recall involves Hampton Bay 3-Light Crystal Chandeliers and Home Decorators Collection 4-Light Crystal Chandeliers.

The Hampton Bay 3-light chandelier has model number 03179-4 and the Home Decorators collection’s model number is 19161-4. The model numbers can be found on the top of the unit.

The chrome ceiling fixtures have dangling crystals, weigh about 16 pounds and have three or four 50-watt halogen bulbs.

The chandeliers, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Home Depot.
