Trisonic Light Bulb Recall: Compact Fluorescent Bulb Poses Fire Hazard

About 124,000 Trisonic compact fluorescent light bulbs have been recalled after several reports of them overheating and catching fire. 

The Trisonic light bulb recall was announced on Tuesday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after the company received four reports of the bulbs overheating and bursting into flames. In two cases, the bulbs caused fires that resulted in minor property damage, but there have been no injuries reported in connection to the defective light bulbs. 

The recall affects Trisonic compact fluorescent light bulbs, including: 

  • 15-watt compact fluorescent light bulbs, model number TS-EN 15W/SP
  • 20-watt compact fluorescent light bulbs, model number TS-EN 20W/SP
  • 22-watt compact fluorescent light bulbs, model number TS-CFL 22WB
  • 25-watt compact fluorescent light bulbs, model number TS-EN 25W/SP 

The model numbers are printed on the base of the bulbs. They were sold in discount stores in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut for between $1 and $1.50 from January 2008 through December 2008. 

Any consumer who has one of the recalled light bulbs should stop using it immediately and contact Trisonic for a full refund at
