H-E-B has issued a recall for 2.5 million halogen light bulbs following reports that they can shatter while in use in a lamp or light fixture, posing laceration and fire hazards to consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that they are aware of 14 reports of light bulbs shattering while in a lamp or a light fixture. One customer reported lacerations to his hand, while another reported burns to his hand and cuts on his foot.
The defective light bulbs were sold at H-E-B stores in Texas and online at www.heb.com between August 2015 and December 2017. The light bulbs were sold in 2-packs for about $2.20 and in 4-packs for about $4.
The bulbs were sold in 25 watt, 40 watt, 60 watt, 75 watt, and 100 watt varieties in either clear or soft white colors. The tops of the bulbs will have “GTC” and the wattage and lumens values printed them.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled halogen light bulbs and return them to H-E-B for a full refund.
