The following notice has been issued by the retailer:
IMPORTANT – B&Q has been made aware that in some circumstances there is a risk of falling parts from the light fittings listed below, potentially causing injury.
These images are illustrative only. Models may vary in shape, size and number of bulbs. If you have a fitting with similar shades please check the list below.
The products affected were offered for sale between February 2014 and February 2017. Despite rigorous quality control procedures it has been brought to B&Q’s attention the lamp shade rings on some models of the ranges of lights may fracture, permitting the shade to fall from the fitting and present a risk of injury.
If you have purchased one of these products which uses the shade ring pictured below left please remove the shade and ring immediately on any affected light fittings, using the original tool supplied, ensuring lights are cool first – or if you are unable to do this, avoid the potential fall zone until you have been able to organise removal of the lampshade/s. Once the shade rings and shades have been removed ceiling light fittings are safe to continue using as normal. Other wall or table lights must not be used due to hot bulbs. Please see below for instructions. If you have any difficulties removing the shades or identifying the rings contact the helpline below.
