The chandelier's fixture loop that connects the hanging chain to the lamp can fail during use causing the chandelier to fall from the ceiling and injure bystanders.
This recall involves Aztec nine-light chandeliers sold at Lowe's stores under the PORTFOLIO brand name. The chandeliers are metal with an olde bronze finish and measure about 31-inches wide and 31-inches high. They 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. "Aztec" and model number 34330 are printed on a sticker located inside the ceiling canopy at the top of the chandelier.
They were sold at Lowe's stores nationwide and at www.lowes.com from July 2006 through August 2011 for about $240.
Consumers should prevent people from going into the immediate area under the chandeliers and contact Kichler for information on how to obtain a free repair kit or replacement for chandeliers that have fallen.
