Philips Endura and Ambient LED Light Recall Issued Due to Shock Hazard

Nearly 100,000 LED dimmable light bulbs have been recalled due to loose wiring that could pose a shock hazard for consumers.  

The Endura and Ambient LED dimmable light bulb recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on August 15, because the bulb’s housing may have an improper fitting.

As result of the problems, a lead wire may become exposed and electrify the entire lamp. Although no injuries have been reported to date, this could pose a potential injury risk.
