Health Canada and Good Earth Lighting are recalling some rechargeable LED motion-activated light bars because they pose fire and fire hazards.

The affected light bars are 30 centimeters long and were sold between October 2017 and January 2024.

The recall notice issued Thursday says the battery can overheat and ignite the plastic around the lamp.

Health Canada says Good Earth Lighting has received seven reports of fires, one report of property damage and one report of death in the United States.

It says there was one reported incident in Canada on May 17, but no reports of injuries.

Consumers with affected products should immediately stop using them and contact Good Earth Lighting for a free replacement.

The recalled model numbers, which can be found on the back or bottom of the products, are RE1122-WHG-12LF0-F and RE1362-RGB-12LF2-G.

Good Earth Lighting says about 37,800 of the light bars have been sold in Canada and about 1.2 million in the US.
