Rechargable Lights good-earth-light-1Here’s another huge recall that you and consumers throughout the nation need to be know about.

Good Earth Lighting is recalling more than 1.2 million rechargeable integrated lights in the United States and about 37,800 in Canada.

The light’s battery can overheat and ignite the light’s plastic housing, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

One consumer died and another was treated for smoke inhalation when the lights overheated and caused a fire. Good Earth has also received nine additional reports of the lights overheating, including six that resulted in fires and property damage.

This recall involves rechargeable lights with model numbers starting with RE1122, RE1145, RE1362, and RE1250. The model number is printed on a white sticker on the back of the light.

The lights’ lithium-ion batteries are intended for use as alternatives to permanently wired fixtures in areas such as closets, cupboards, staircases, and any place where there are barriers to installing wired lights.

The recalled lights are about 12 inches long and were sold in packages of one or two units. White, silver, almond, black, and rose gold in color, they were sold with a charging cable and with or without a remote control and/or power adapter.

Sold from October 2017 through January 2024 at Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Meijer, and Menards and online at,,, and QVC, the cost was about $20 for the single unit and $35 for the bundle.

Consumers should immediately stop using the lights and contact Good Earth Lighting to receive a free replacement light, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.
