CPSC, Ginger(tm) Announce Recall of Bathroom Light Fixtures

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces
the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm below.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless
otherwise instructed.

Name of product: The Ginger(r) Kubic(r), K2(r) and Surface(tm) Bathroom
Light Fixtures

Units: About 5,900

Manufacturer: Ginger(r), of Fort Mill, S.C.

Problem: The glass shades can separate from the light fixture, posing a

suffered a minor cut to his foot after stepping on broken glass from a
fallen shade.

light fixtures feature 8-inch-long, cylindrical, white glass shades that
are about 3-inches in diameter. They have chrome or satin nickel wall
plates, some decoratively encircled with wood. The lights can be
installed horizontally or vertically. The lights use incandescent bulbs
up to 100 watts. No screws are used to attach these shades. They are
glued to a metal base, which screws onto the fixture. No writing is
visible on the mounted light fixtures. For more information on model
numbers and distinctive features of these fixtures, contact Ginger(r).

Sold to: Commercial dealers and to consumers through select showrooms
and retailers nationwide from August 2003 through September 2004 for
