Halco Recalls LED Bulbs

Halco Lighting Technologies LLC of Norcross, GA has recalled about 9500 of its ProLED-brand LED bulbs manufactured in China.

In a report filed with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSA), Halco says that, once installed, the LED bulbs can overheat and fall onto consumers positioned below the light fixture, posing both impact and burn hazards to consumers. The company has received reports of five separate incidents in which the LED bulb has separated from the socket, but no reports of injuries.

The recalled LED bulbs were sold at lighting retailers and distributors nationwide from June 2009 through March 2014 for between $20 and $100, depending on the specific model number.
