March 26, 2014 – Health Canada informs us of a recall involving 23 LED light bulbs of the Satco KolourOne brand, where the metal housing portion of the bulb can separate from the plastic driver, which can cause the lamp to fall.
The product item number begins with an S89XX or S90XX and is located on the neck of the bulb, below the KolourOne logo. The bulbs are white.
This recall includes all lot numbers which DO NOT have the letter ‘A’ in the last character position. Affected production lot numbers can be found on the outer rim of the optical lens. To verify whether bulb is part of the recall, it must have all of the following:
• KolourOne brand
• Product item number listed in table
• Lot number without the letter ‘A’ at the end
Satco has received four reports of individual bulbs separating in the United States and none in Canada. No injuries have been reported.
About 2352 of the recalled bulbs were sold in Canada and about 119,000 bulbs were distributed in the United States. They were sold from December 2012 to February 2014 in both countries. They were manufactured in China.
Consumers should stop using the recalled LED bulbs immediately, remove them and contact Satco for free replacements. Contact Satco Products Inc. at (888) 770-7125 from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm (CST) Monday through Friday, or visit Satco’s recall webpage.
