The recalled wall switch poses an electrical shock to consumers changing the bulbs.

Motion Sensing Wall Switches Recalled Due to Shock Hazard

 
About 75,000 Heath/Zenith and WirelessCommand motion sensing wall switches were recalled by manufacturer HeathCo due to electrical shock hazard.

When the switches are in the auto mode and the light is off, a small amount of leakage current passes through the electrical circuit, including the socket. If consumers fail to disconnect the power at the circuit breaker and make contact with both terminals inside the socket while replacing the bulbs, there is the risk of an electrical shock.

Fortunately this problem with the wall switches was recognized before any incidents or injuries have been recorded.

Consumer should stop using the wall switches immediately and contact the company for a free replacement.

More information on brand and model number can be found on the CPSC recall page.
