Over 300,000 light bulbs recalled due to fire hazard.

Energy-Efficient Lightbulb Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission just announced the recall of over 300,000 Telstar energy-saving light bulbs due to a fire hazard. The light bulbs can overheat, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Already there have been two reports of fires. Although one was contained to the light fixture the other resulted in a residential fire.

The bulbs were sold under both the Telstar and Electra brand names. Both spiral and "3-Us" styles of bulb were named in the recall.

Consumers should consult the CPSC recall page for the complete listing of model numbers for the recalled bulbs. Those consumers who own a recalled bulb should stop using it immediately and return it the store where purchased for a refund.

More info can also be found at the Telstar website.
