The submitter is reporting the product for posing a fire and injury hazard. He indicated that the units blow up while in use and has had multiple incidents involving this model.

He said two out of the four bulbs in the pack have exploded. After he purchased the pack, he installed a bulb in a table lamp and shortly after the bulb exploded while the lamp was on. He then installed a second bulb and this bulb exploded last month. He still has the remaining two bulbs from the pack but he doesn’t feel safe using them.

He indicated that he bought a similar pack last year and two of the four bulbs exploded while they were in the table lamp. He does not believe the lamp has been a factor in the incident because he has never had an incident with another brand or model bulb and he has had the lamp for almost 10 years.

He contacted the firm after the first two incidents occurred but he believes they have not corrected the defect and the product poses a serious safety hazard.
