About 60 days ago I purchased, from Walmart, their brand of 24 inch LED light bulb as a replacement for a burned out fluorescent bulb. This bulb had the Great Value stamp on the base and shows the manufacturer as INTERTEK. Below the Intertek logo was the number 5005914. Also found on the bulb was the number GVL 2T81227.

On the morning of November 25, 2019, upon flipping the wall switch to start the bulb, there was a loud POP and the smell of electronics burning. I removed the light cover to find that the bulb had exploded at one end and several shards of glass were found in the cover. There was also black smoke on the inside of the fixture, adjacent to the area of explosion, indicating a fire had been present. This is a ceiling light with two bulbs. There was no damage to the other bulb, which was a regular fluorescent bulb, and it continues to function properly.

Other writing on the bulb base was: Zhenjang Qeanging Electronic Co. LMTD
20W/24T12 Linear Fluorescent Bulb
