Dear Fellow NANFA members,

This came across my desk today at the fire station, it is a product
recall notice from the CPSC, a monthly newsletter service from the MA
State Fire Marshals Office:

"Perfecto Manufacturing, Inc. of Noblesville, Ind. is voluntarily
recalling about 23,400 "SHOlights" aquarium lights. Sharp edges on these
lights could cut the insulation on the wiring. If the wires become
exposed, consumers could suffer shocks or electrocution. There is also
the risk of fire. In addition, some of these lights could overheat and
cause the same problems.

CPSC and Perfecto are not aware of any incidents involving these aquarium
lights. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of

The plastic body of the SHOlights are black or oak-colored, and are 24,
30, 36 or 48 inches in length. All 36 inch SHOlights that hold two
bulbs, and all SHOlights manufactured in July 1999 or earlier are part of
this recall. The manufacturing date is located on a white label on the
metal reflector. The label shows a picture of an anchor, and reads
"cleaned by" or "built by" followed by the date. If there is no label,
or the label cant be read, it should be considered part of the recall.
Pet stores nationwide sold these lights from August 1998 through July
1999 for a suggested retail price of $125.00 to $175.00."

So, check your hoods guys (and gals), and take advantage of the recall if
you so have one.

Happy Holidays from New England!

Rick Rego.
