Good Earth Lighting Recalls

Good Earth Lighting recalls more than 1.2 million rechargeable integrated lights due to potential fire and burn hazards. Following a tragic incident where one consumer reportedly died, and another suffered from smoke inhalation due to a fire caused by the overheating of the product, Good Earth Lighting, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has initiated this recall. Additionally, there have been nine other reports of lights overheating, resulting in six fires and property damage.

The recall affects rechargeable lights with model numbers starting with RE1122, RE1145, RE1362, and RE1250, with approximately 37,800 lights also sold in Canada. These lights, equipped with lithium-ion batteries, were marketed as alternatives to permanently wired fixtures, suitable for areas such as closets, cupboards, and staircases. Sold in packages of one or two units, they come in various colors and configurations, including with or without a remote control and/or power adapter.

Manufactured in Cambodia and China, these lights were available at hardware and home improvement stores nationwide, including Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Meijer, and Menards, as well as online through various retailers like Amazon and QVC, from October 2017 through January 2024, priced at approximately $20 for a single unit and $35 for a bundle.

Consumers who have purchased these recalled lights are urged to discontinue use immediately and contact Good Earth Lighting for a free replacement light of equal value, inclusive of shipping costs. The company advises consumers to mark the model number on the back of the light, write “Recalled” on the front, and upload photos to their website to initiate the replacement process.
