FEIT 9W 5000K daylight replacement light bulb (#E330072) for incandescent bulbs that screw into a standard lamp fixture.

The light began flickering and when checked I noticed that the bulb jiggled when touched which caused it to go on and off with only very slight movement.

While unscrewing the bulb it separated at the base, leaving the exposed electronics power module in the socket and the bulb section in my hand.

I disconnected the lamp and removed the base with electronics module. After removal, I discovered the screw-in base is NOT securely fastened to the light bulb section. It's merely a press-in fitting that can be easily separated, thus exposing the electronics and presenting a potential shock hazard.
