Good Earth Lighting Inc., in collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has announced the recall of an astounding 1.2 million rechargeable integrated lights. This drastic action follows a tragic incident resulting in one consumer fatality.


The recall was triggered by the discovery that the batteries in these light bars can overheat, leading to the unit catching fire. This poses a significant risk of burns and smoke inhalation. The recall comes in the wake of one reported death and another individual treated for smoke inhalation due to an overheating light causing a fire.



The lithium-ion battery-powered lights, intended as alternatives to permanent fixtures in places where wiring may be difficult, such as closets, staircases, and cupboards, are now under scrutiny. The products impacted by the recall can be identified by their model numbers: RE1122, RE1145, RE1362, and RE1250.

These lights were sold at hardware and home improvement stores, including Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, and Meijer, as well as online at Amazon, GoodEarthLighting.com, and more between October 2017 and January 2024 in the U.S. An additional 37,800 were sold in Canada.


In response to the situation, Good Earth Lighting is offering free light replacement bars to impacted consumers. The company urges those in possession of these recalled products to stop using them immediately.
