2,200 metal and crystal chandeliers have been recalled by the Chico, California-based Currey & Company. 100 were distributed in Canada, with the rest available across the United States between January 2010 and February of this year. Various models are affected, but each has one thing in common: wiring that could be defective and thus transmit electricity to the metal of the chandelier. If the metal is electrified and a person makes contact with it, he or she could be injured. Thankfully, no such incidents have been reported at this time. Owners are being asked to cut power from the chandeliers and get in touch with the company to obtain a replacement product.
