Bel Air Lighting Inc., in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is issuing a recall of their outdoor wall mount lanterns due to injury hazards. An electrical short circuit can occur in the internal wiring of the lantern, which can pose a risk of electric shock, fire, or burn injury to consumers. The recall affects 99,700 units. Currently, the Valencia, California-based firm has received seven reports of incidents, including two reports of the lanterns catching fire, but fortunately no injuries have been reported.

The outdoor wall-mount lanterns are made of rust-colored cast aluminum with beveled glass. The outdoor wall mount lanterns, manufactured in China, were sold at Lowe’s stores and in lighting showrooms across the country for about $48 from June 2006 to May 2012. The brand name and item number 44181 are printed on the product’s packaging.
