PhotoPetSmart of Phoenix, Ariz., is recalling about 23,400 reptile strip light fixtures sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The strip light’s fluorescent bulb can overheat causing the hood on the light fixture to ignite, posing a fire hazard.

The company has received six reports of the hood on the recalled light fixtures igniting.

This recall involves 20-inch and 30-inch All Living Things reptile strip light fixtures that simulate natural daylight and are attached to the top of the reptile’s terrarium.

The 20-inch fixture has UPC number 73725773305 and the 30-inch fixture has UPC number 73725773306 printed on the packaging.

The light fixtures, manufactured in China, were sold at PetSmart stores nationwide from March 2017, through July 2018, for about $35 (20-inch) and $40 (30-inch).

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled light fixtures and return them to any PetSmart store for a full refund.

Consumers may contact PetSmart toll-free at (888) 839-9638 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (MT) Monday through Friday or online at www.petsmart.com and click on “Recalls” at the bottom of the page for more information.
