The batteries in the solar-powered light fixtures can overheat and cause the light fixture’s housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.
This recall involves solar-powered, motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures sold under the All-Pro and Defiant brands. 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 the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lighting fixtures and contact the Eaton Customer Service Center for a free replacement battery pack. Eaton will ship the replacement battery pack with step-by-step battery replacement instructions.
Cooper Lighting has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
