B&Q has recalled 25 light fittings sold in its stores between February 2014 and February 2017 due to the risk of parts falling from the fixtures and injuring people.

A spokesperson for the retailer explained, “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."

Customers with any of the lights in question are being advised to remove the shade and ring immediately and, until this is done, to avoid the potential fall zone.

How long before the British public will complain enough to get these Chinese poor quality products removed? When you cost the total expense incurred in time/admin/travel and short life of these products it may be a British produced product is more cost effective. We also have the recycle costs of all these poor quality products.
