WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with HeathCo LLC, has issued a voluntary recall of the company's motion security lights for a possible electrical shock hazard.

The CPSC says the internal wiring of the product can be damaged during installation or during bulb replacement or adjustment, which poses the hazard.

The lights were sold at Home Depot stores from September 2011 through April 2012 for about $30.  There was approximately 7,800 of them sold.

So far, no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the light, turn off the power to the unit at the circuit breaker or fuse panel, and contact HeathCo for a free replacement light fixture.  You can call them toll free at (855) 833-8657 or visit www.health-zenith.com/hzproductnotice.
