UL warns of potentially dangerous self-ballasted lamp

Product produced be Fujian Joinluck Electronic Enterprises

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recently sent out a notice that Globe Mini-Spiral, 13W, 120V, 60 Hz, 225mA self-ballasted lamps have an unauthorized UL mark and may pose a potential fire and electric shock hazard. The bulbs, manufactured by Fujian Joinluck Electronic Enterprise, were produced between January 2002 and April 2003 and made with parts that UL didn’t investigate. As a result, the parts can fail and melt a hole in the enclosure, which poses a fire hazard and exposes the user to dangerous voltage. UL recommends that consumers stop using the lamp and return it to the place of purchase.
