The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Cooper Lighting, a division of Eaton, Peachtree City, GA, have announced the recall of approximately 362,000 All-Pro and Defiant solar-powered outdoor LED light fixtures fearing their batteries can overheat and cause the light fixture’s housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.

About 350,000 were sold in the United States, and about 11,963 in Canada.

Solar-powered, motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures sold under the All-Pro and Defiant brands are being recalled. The model number is displayed on the interior of the fixture.

The Defiant MST1000LWDF, All-Pro MST800L, and All-Pro MST800LW all have two light sources on top of a housing with a round motion sensor on the bottom of that housing.

The All-Pro WPS2040M has a flat housing with the LED light source in the center of the housing and an integrated motion sensor lens and dimmer above the motion sensor. All of the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel.

Cooper Lighting has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage, according to CPSC. No injuries have been reported.
