December 16, 2015 – TCP has recalled Technical Consumer Products and Great Value LED 14W LED wet location PAR38 lamps due to electrical shock hazard.

CPSC reports the recall involves white lamps that produce a Soft White (3000K) or Bright White (5000K) colour temperature. In wet location applications, water can enter the lamp, posing an electric shock hazard to the user. Recalled units have an item number of:

• L14P38D30KFL
• L14P38D50KFL
• RLP381430WL
• GVRLP381430WL

and the date code printed directly on the white plastic heat sink of the lamp, just above the screw-in base (see chart below). Consumers will need to shut off power to the lights and disengage the lamp to check the item number and date code.

Advertisment

According to CPSC, about 1350 were sold in Canada. They were sold at Walmart and electrical distributors from May 2015 through October 2015 for about $20.

Although no incidents/injuries have been reported, consumers should immediately shut off power to the lights, remove the lamps to check the item number/date code of the recall, and contact TCP to receive a free replacement lamp with installation instructions.
