Portland, ME—About 42,000 LED Lamps by Eco-Story have been voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fire hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on January 19, 2011.
The recall was initiated after discovering that if the lamps are used with the Class ll transformer, the lamp can overheat, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves the LED 12-volt lamps with UL number E316865. The UL number is found on a label located at the base of each lamp.”
Commercial customers are advised to stop using the lamps and contact Eco-Story for a free replacement lamp that does not require a Class II Transformer. The LED lamps were not sold directly to consumers.
For further information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Eco-Story at (207) 774-9889 collect or visit their website at www.eco-story.com.
