One of the many models of recalled lamps.

1.8 Million CFL Lamps Recalled Due to Laceration Hazard

Philips Lighting Company of Somerset, NJ, recently recalled 1.86 million EnergySaver and Marathon Compact Fluorescent Dimmable Reflector Flood Lamps due to a laceration hazard.

The glue that attaches the glass outer envelope to the body of the lamp can fail in these products, allowing the glass outer envelope to fall and strike people below, which creates a laceration hazard.

There have been 700 reports of glue failing, including two reports of minor injury and three reports of property damage.

Consumers who own a recalled lamp should contact Philips to receive instructions on how to receive a free lamp.

Go to the CPSC recall page for model numbers, additional information and contact information for Philips.
