Re: Complaint - Defective Light Bulbs

On December 27, 2019, I wrote to you regarding my experience with having a second light bulb explode in one of the fixtures in my apartment and have received no response. Today, for the third time, another light bulb exploded, sending shards of glass flying all over the bathroom. Just for your information, I do not go through many light bulbs in a year so I find it concerning that so many of the bulbs I have used in the past year or so have wound up being explosive devices.

It seems GE has continuing major quality control issues these days. What will it take for GE to address this issue of exploding light bulbs-a shard of glass being embedded in some part of my body?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Sincerely
[REDACTED]
