The Consumer Products Safety Commission has recently listed an LED light bulb as a fire hazard.  These 120 volt LED light bulbs were imported by Lighting Science Group Corporation and are supposed to use less electricity than traditional incandescent and CFL bulbs.

The bulbs in question are marketed under the brand names Definity, Ecosmart, Sylvania, and Westinghouse and come in 6, 8 and 9 watt varieties. Model numbers A 19, G25, and R20 and PAR20 have been identified as the ones that could potentially be dangerous.

Hoffman & Gelfman encourages anyone who has purchased any LED lights to check the website for more information and to make sure they have not purchased any of these particular bulbs. These bulbs can overheat and have been known to cause smoke and fire conditions.

Poor workmanship or improper inspection are just a couple of the many possible causes for product failure that can lead to injuries and damage to your home.
