Guangzhou Glorious Lighting Ltd. of Hong Kong is recalling portable fluorescent lamps because they may overheat around the lamp holder, causing the surrounding plastic to soften, deform and possibly ignite or expose live electrical parts, Health Canada warns.
The lamps bear the model number 15844-001, and the base has a holographic label with the UL and c-UL icons, and includes:
Issue No. BK-64, 219
Additional labels on the base say:
Consumers should stop using the lamps and return them to the retailer.
Health Canada has received no reports that Canadians have been injured using these lamps.
