A recall of 9,500 LED bulbs has been issued by Halco Lighting Technologies because the bulbs can overheat, separating from the socket, and fall, posing an injury risk, and burn hazard. The CPSC has received five reports of the LED bulbs separating from the socket.
The bulbs have a cluster of 6 to 16 LEDs and are either 14 or 18 watts. These LED bulbs feature a metal-cone shaped housing and are used in recessed lights, outdoor security lighting, and in retail lights. A label printed with “ProLED,” the model number, product name, and date code can be found on the plastic housing. Recalled LED bulbs should be immediately removed from the light fixture, and consumers should contact the company for a free replacement bulb.
