WASHINGTON, D.C., May 22, 2003 -- 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.
Distributor: Sea Gull Lighting Inc., of Riverside, N.J.
Hazard: The wiring in the lights can short, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
