Recessed light junction box question


I'm installing a recessed light in a basement bathroom. I bought the light from Menards (Quantum). My question is... the electrical box connected to the light does not have any type of cover on it, just three sides with knockouts. Can I run my wires to this box only, leaving them exposed? Is there a cover for this or do I connect a regular jb to tis one?
Thanks for any help.
Chris

There should be a cover. Take it back to the store and exchange it for one that has a cover.
