Officials are reporting a massive recall for those who own solar panels.

SolarWorld says they are recalling approximately 1.3 million solar systems installed with bare-copper grounding lugs.

The company says the bare-copper lugs can corrode and possibly cause an electrical shock, electrocution or fire hazard.

The faulty grounding lugs were installed with solar units sold from June 2011 to June 2014.

The firm says they have received one report of corrosion related to the bare copper lugs.

No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should contact SolarWorld at (877) 360-1787 to set up a service appointment for repair.
