WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Consumer Product and Safety Commission announced two new recalls Wednesday.
Lithonia Lighting recalled Quantum ELM and ELM2 two-light emergency fixtures due to a fire hazard. Officials say the circuit board can overheat and cause the fixture to melt, which can catch fire and ignite items nearby.
The recall impacts about 1.7 million units that were sold at electrical distributors, Home Depot, and other retailers nationwide. The company has received 29 reports of circuit boards overheating and fixtures melting or catching fire, with one incident resulting in more than $100,000 property damage to an office building.
No injuries have been reported. Consumers are asked to immediately stop using the lights and contact Lithonia Lighting to receive instructions on how to order a free repair kit, which includes a new circuit board.

Hamilton Beach also recalled their baby food makers due to a small parts hazard. Officials say the use of the slicing/shredding disc with the motor shaft adapter can cause the stainless steel pin in the food bowl lid to loosen and fall into processed food.
The recall impacts about 790 units in the United States and about 3,100 in Canada. Hamilton Beach says they have received four reports of the stainless steel pin in the food bowl lid coming loose, including three where the pin fell into processed food.
CPSC says there has been no reports of injuries or property damage.
The food processors were sold at Buy Buy Baby stores nationwide and online on Hamilton Beach and Walmart's websites. Consumers can contact Hamilton Beach to get a free replacement food bowl lid, motor shaft adapter and slicing/shredding disc.
