Walmart Great Value BR30 Floodlight, 40 watt, energy Saver Halogen light bulb - installed in my kitchen light recently. The outside glass part of the light bulb just popped and exploded all over the kitchen and eating area with great force, shards of glass everywhere, this is dangerous, as normally my daughter and I would be sitting underneath that very light bulb, eating and doing homework. That light bulb was installed directly over the edge of the kitchen island and chairs where my daughter normally sits.

The halogen light part is still working and in the light socket but there is no glass housing. It is unclear how I will be able to uninstall that light fixture as it was installed with a suction cup-pole as the ceilings are high.

The pop-explosion is dangerous. We could have been injured by the exploding glass -it was very forceful and glass shards were strewn across 2 rooms.
