Lithonia Lighting recalls over 1 million emergency lights

Quantum ELM and ELM2 two-light emergency fixture

Lithonia Lighting is recalling about 1.7 million units of its Quantum ELM and ELM2 two-light emergency fixture, citing a fire hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the circuit board has a tendency to overheat and cause the fixture to melt and catch fire.

There have been 29 incident reports thus far, with one resulting in over $100,000 worth of property damage. No injuries have been reported, however.

The affected fixtures are about 12.5 inches wide, 5 inches high and 3.75 inches deep and come in white or black pastic. They have two incandescent lights and a rechargeable lead acid battery. The circuit boards within are green on both sides with either Rev B or Rev Cprinted in the top left corner. Those with circuit boards that are beige on one side and are marked with ELM2 LED, ELM2 SD and ELM2 WRS are not affected by the recall.
