WASHINGTON, D.C. -- HeathCo, LLC of Bowling Green, Kentucky is voluntarily recalling approximately 75,0000 Heath®/Zenith and WirelessCommand® motion sensing wall switches.
The product replaces a standard household wall switch and is designed to turn off the attached lighting load when motion is no longer detected in the room. The products come in white or ivory. The brand name and model number can be found on a label located on the side of the switch.
When the switches are in the auto mode and the light is off, a small amount of leakage current passes through the electric circuit, including the socket. If consumers fail to disconnect the power at the circuit breaker and make contact with both terminals inside the socket while replacing the bulbs, there is a risk of an electric shock.
The products were sold at mass merchants, electrical distributors, hardware retailers and online retailers from August 2007 through August 2011 for between $20 and $25.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled wall switches and contact the company for a free wall switch replacement at (855) 704-5438 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, email email@example.com or visit the company's website at www.heath-zenith.com/hzproductnotice.
