The date code is located on a sticker attached to each unit and is in the format KWWYY representing WW-work week and YY-year of manufacture.  Only downlights with date codes between K4816 and K1118 are included in this recall.  The Ketra D3 downlight is typically installed behind a ceiling and the light generated by the LED illuminates the space below.

The firm has received two reports of incorrect wiring found in the downlights by an electrician. No injuries have been reported.
