Technical Consumer Products has announced a recall of Connected brand LED downlights. The internal wiring in the lights can contact the downlight’s metal trim, posing an electrical shock hazard to consumers. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The recall includes 24,400 “LED Downlights for Recessed Cans” that were sold at Home Depot stores and electrical distributors in the U.S. and online at Amazon.com from June 2014 through June 2015 for about $35. (In addition, 6,200 units were sold in Canada.) These recalled lights are white and produce a soft white (2700 Kelvin) or bright white (5000 Kelvin) color temperature. The brand is Connected by TCP, and they are 5-inch and 6-inch LED Downlight retrofits for recessed cans. Item number “CD611LC” and the date code are printed on the black base of the lamp. “Connected automated home lighting system” is printed on the product packaging, along with the item number, UPC code and date code.
Consumers should not touch the lamp while it is powered. To check the item number and date code, owners should first shut off power to the lights and disengage the lamp. If your lamp is recalled, you should contact TCP to receive a free replacement lamp with installation instructions.
