Recall: Downlight Poses Shock Hazard
July 11, 2018 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Ketra D3 recessed downlights have been recalled because the power supply connectors can have incorrect wiring, posing an electric shock hazard.
About 3,400 units are affected by this recall, which was prompted after Ketra received reports of two incidents where an electrician found incorrect wiring in the fixture. No injuries have been reported, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall 18-175.
The recalled downlights were manufactured between Nov. 4, 2016, and March 14, 2018, and sold between November 2016 and April 2018. A date code sticker on the unit follows the format K(work week)(Year of manufacture). Date codes between K4816 and K1118 are included in this recall.
Facility managers affected by this recall are directed to stop using the downlights and contact Ketra to schedule a free inspection and repair, if needed. The company can be reached at 800-940-5917 or www.KetraRecall.com.
