November 5, 2013 – Thanks to the U.S.’s Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) for letting us know Infinity Green Products is recalling LED candelabra lights due to a fire hazard. Specifically, the bulbs can overheat and catch fire.
The recall involves about 2000 units, and we are unsure how many, if any, made it into Canada.
The bulbs come with a universal adaptor and look like a standard candle light bulb. They have a white base with a silver heat sink with a screw-in universal adaptor. Recalled model numbers are UDC3CW in cool white and UDC3WW in warm white.
The bulbs do not have markings and the single package has “Lighting Facts per bulb” with data about the wattage and other information printed on a small label at the end of box. Bulbs also come in four-packs coloured blue or yellow with “Infinity LED”, “fully dimmable down to 5%” and “Candelabra LED” printed on the package.
Infinity Green Products has received two reports involving bulbs overheating and catching fire. No injuries have been reported.
The products were manufactured in China and made available through Heartland America by catalogue, and online at Heartlandamerica.com, OfficeSuperSavers.com, Toolking.com, Wayfair.com and Green Express Direct.com from June 2013 through October 2013 for about $17.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled LED bulbs and contact Infinity Green Products for instructions on how to receive a prepaid postage label to return the product and get a full refund. Reach them at (855) 376-3260 or visit them online and click on recall near the top left of the page, under the logo.
