Bel Air Lighting, of Valencia, Calif., has issued a recall of its Portfolio and Transglobe nine-light chandeliers due to several reports of falling fixtures.
The mounting loop that secures the chandelier to the ceiling is prone to breakage and poses a personal injury risk.
The chandeliers were sold at Lowe's under the Portfolio brand (item No. 256047) and as Transglobe at lighting stores across the nation (Transglobe item No. 2579 EBG). The recall affects approximately 20,500 units sold.
Consumers are advised to avoid standing directly under the chandeliers and to contact Bel Air for a free replacement mounting ring, as well as instructions on how to secure reimbursement for the cost of the installation.
Bel Air has received 18 reports of fallen chandeliers, with some reports of property damage. No injuries have been reported.
