Ginger is recalling the Ginger Kubic, K2 and Surface bathroom light fixtures. The glass shades can separate from the light fixture, posing a risk that a consumer could be cut by the broken glass if the shade were to fall and break.
The firm has received one report of a consumer who suffered a minor cut to his foot after stepping on broken glass from a fallen shade.
The Ginger Kubic, K2 and Surface collection light fixtures feature 8-inch-long, cylindrical, white glass shades that are about 3-inches in diameter. They have chrome or satin nickel wall plates, some decoratively encircled with wood. The lights can be installed horizontally or vertically. The lights use incandescent bulbs up to 100 watts.
No screws are used to attach the shades. They are glued to a metal base, which screws onto the fixture. No writing is visible on the mounted light fixtures. For more information on model numbers and distinctive features of these fixtures, contact Ginger.
The fixtures were sold to commercial dealers and to consumers through select showrooms and retailers nationwide from August 2003 through September 2004 for between $240 and $355.
