GE recalls 92,000 tube lamps sold at Lowe’s


General Electric is recalling 96,000 LED tube lamps sold exclusively at Lowe’s that pose a shock and electrocution hazard.

The lamps are the Cool White Universal T8/T12 LED tube lamps sold in two-packs.

The lamps are most often used in garages, basements, workshops and utility rooms. The GE logo and model information are printed on a label near the tube’s base.

The issue is the pins on one end of the lamp can be energized during installation or removal, which can cause electric shock and electrocution hazards.

The lamps were sold at Lowe’s and from November 2017 through April 2018 for about $15.

You can learn more about the recall and what you should do if you have the bulbs by going to the GE recall page.
