WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firms below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Expo Design Center, a division of The Home Depot, of Atlanta, Ga.

The decorative metal rings on the ends of the lamp fixtures can detach. Consumers could suffer minor burns if they touch the hot rings.
Five reports of incidents involving in-store displays have been reported by store associates. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves the Hampton Bay® three-head, flush-mount, halogen light fixture with silver metal rings on the lamp fixtures. It is 15.75-inches wide by 6 inches high. The lights have frosted glass shades. The position of the three lamps on the fixture can be adjusted by turning and bending the lamp heads. A clear label on the fixture reads "MADE IN CHINA," and "E91785."
Expo Design Center stores from February 2004 to August 2004 for about $40.
Customers should stop using the light fixtures and return them to the nearest Expo Design Center store for a refund.
