What is the problem?

The fixture's socket wire insulation can degrade and lead to charged wires becoming exposed, causing electricity to pass to the metal canopy of the fixture. This poses a fire and electric shock hazard to consumers.

How can I tell if I own this product?

This recall involves round ceiling-mounted light fixtures sold in satin nickel, bronze, polished brass, antique brass, white, or bronze finishes with a domed white or amber glass shade. The light fixture is 14 inches in diameter and 5.75 inches high and has two sockets marked "BO AN" which take 75 watt bulbs.
