CPSC, Apollo Presentation Products Announce Recall of Light Boxes

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Apollo Presentation Products, of Ronkonkoma, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 30,000 portable light boxes, used to view film, slides and transparencies. The light boxes have loose wires and lack adequate grounding, presenting fire, electrocution and shock hazards to consumers.

CPSC has received two reports of loose wires, one in which the light box caught fire, resulting in $5,000 property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled Apollo light boxes are models LB100, LB101, LB102 and LB110. The model number is located on a sticker affixed to the unit's side. The sticker also reads in part, "Portable Light Box...CSA." The light box consists of a white metal box, containing a fluorescent light, and a Plexiglas viewing plate that slides into two black metal guides on top of the metal box. The light box has a folding handle and tilt stand, and it can be wall mounted.

The light boxes were sold in a box labeled in part, "APOLLO PRESENTATION PRODUCTS, GLOWPRO PORTABLE LIGHT BOX, Made in China." A photo of the product and the model number are on the box.

Office supply stores nationwide sold the light boxes from June 1997 through April 2000 for $66 to $115.

Consumers should stop using the recalled light boxes immediately, and call Apollo for instructions on returning the projectors to the company for a refund. Consumers should call Apollo toll-free at (800) 352-6853 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or access the firm's website at

Apollo light boxes that are marked with a UL logo are not part of this recall.
