TCP and Great Value Wet Location LEDs Pose Electrical Shock Hazard

About 25,000 LED lamps are being recalled because water can enter the lamp and pose an electric shock hazard to the user. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The lamps were sold under Technical Consumer Products (TCP) and Great Value brand names at Walmart and electrical distributors from May 2015 through October 2015 for about $20 each. The recall includes 14 watt LED wet location PAR38 lamps.  They are white and produce a soft white (3000 Kelvin) or bright white (5000 Kelvin) color temperature. Recalled units have an item number of “L14P38D30KFL”, “L14P38D50KFL”, “RLP381430WL” or “GVRLP381430WL” and the date code printed directly on the white plastic heat sink of the lamp, just above the screw in base.

Consumers should immediately shut off power to the lights, remove the lamps to check the item number/date code of the recall, and contact TCP to receive a free replacement lamp with installation instructions.
