Your Front Porch Light Could Be a Fire Hazard — Do You Have One of These?
Here is another product recall that, due to local availability, might be on several homes in this area. I know of at least one because about a year ago, I installed one on my house! I will be uninstalling it as soon as I can. As with many electrical products, it can pose a fire hazard or electrical shock. Here is a picture of the product.
