The information below is a recall notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) announcing a recall of Quantam ELM and ELM2 two-light emergency fixtures. Specific model numbers for the recalled product are listed on the CPSC website. 

Lithonia Lighting has announced a voluntary recall of the Quantum series ELM and ELM2 two-light emergency fixtures. Lithonia has received 29 reports of incidents including one resulting in more than $100,000 of property damage. No injuries have been reported. The circuit board can overheat and cause the fixture to melt, catch fire and ignite nearby items, posing a risk of fire and burn hazards to consumers. This recall involves about 1.7 million ELM and ELM2 emergency light fixtures. The recalled units have circuit boards that are green on both sides and either Rev B or Rev C printed in the top left corner. The involved light fixtures were sold at electrical distributors, The Home Depot, W.W. Grainger, Inc. stores, and other retailers nationwide and online from March 2010 through February 2014. 

This recall presents a potential avenue of recovery which subrogation professionals should be aware of when evaluating losses.
