SYLVANIA Lighting is recalling its Start Track spot integral luminaire over fears that it could pose a potential electrical shock hazard.

The company emphasised that the recall is a voluntary action undertaken as a precaution, as no incidents have been recorded to date.

In a statement, Sylvania said that in very rare cases, the internal wiring insulation can be become defect while adjusting the luminaire. 

This poses a potential electrical shock hazard.

In all, 12 models which were sold both directly and via electrical wholesalers and other distributors between March 2019 and February 2020 are affected.

They range from the 1350 lumen package version up to the 5000 lumen version in both black and white.

Affected models include:

  • 5422 START Track Spot Integral 1350lm 930 MB WB WHT
