Ketra Inc., has issued a recall for D3 recessed downlights because the power supply connectors can have incorrect wiring, posing an electric shock hazard to the user.

This recall involves approximately 3,400 recessed downlights produced between November 4, 2016 and March 14, 2018. The date code is located on a sticker attached to each unit and is in the format KWWYY representing WW-work week and YY- year of manufacture. Only downloads with date codes between k4816 and K1118 are included in this recall. The recessed downlights were sold by authorized Ketra lighting distributors and speciality audio/video stores nationwide from November 2016 to April 2018 for between $550 and $750.

The firm has received two reports of incorrect wiring found in the downlights by an electrician. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled downlights and contact the firm to schedule a free inspection and, if needed, repair by a technician. Consumers should not try to inspect or repair the units themselves. Warning and instructions must be followed to disconnect power prior to servicing, removing, or replacing the recalled products.
