January 6, 2015 – UL is warning consumers that 7W LED lamps Model XPL13-41K bear a counterfeit UL mark, meaning they have not been evaluated by UL to the appropriate standards for safety, so it is unknown whether they comply with any safety requirements.
Even though their name is on the product and packaging, these products were not produced with authorization by Lighting Enhancement Distributors LLC (LED LLC).
It is unknown how many units, if any, made their way into Canada.
The product is marked MADE IN KOREA.
The lamps were distributed by Friendly Service Sales in Downey, Calif., but are known to be sold at eBay by friendlyservicesales1 (and may have been sold at other locations).
