Aztec ChandeliersHealth Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves some Aztec Nine-Light Chandeliers sold at Lowe’s stores under the Portfolio brand name. The recalled Chandeliers are metal with an “olde bronze” finish and measure about 31-inches wide and 31-inches high.

The Chandeliers come with etched amber glass shades and a decorative faux marble ball in the center. The upper arms of the fixture are single long curves and the lower arms of the fixture are “S” shaped. The word “Aztec” and model number “34330” are printed on a sticker located inside the ceiling canopy at the top of the chandelier.

Kichler Lighting has received six reports of the Aztec Nine-Light Chandeliers falling from the ceiling. HCSC says the Chandelier were sold exclusively at Lowe’s Stores.

About Mustard & Sulphite (Sulfite) Allergies:
For some people, mustard (and mustard products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing mustard within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

Likewise, for some people, sulphites (sulfites) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. In addition, those with Asthma or other respiratory problems may require immediate attention for serious and life-threatening breathing difficulties.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
