On January 27, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall notice of Lunera Lighting Inc.’s Lunera 13 watt Helen GX23 LED industrial lamps due to the discovery that this product has the tendency to overheat, which could pose fire, burn, and electric shock risks to the consumers. According to the press release, an estimated 60,000 units of the product included in the recall were sold in the U.S. About 1,000 units were sold in Canada.

The faulty dimmable lamps are 6 inches long by 1.25 inches wide by 0.75 inches thick. The company’s logo is located on the front of the lamp, and the date code ranges from 1501 to 1552. The model numbers, which are located on the connector, are:

  • HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-2700-G3
  • HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-3000-G3
  • HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-3500-G3
  • HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-4000-G3

The company has already been notified of eleven cases of the lamps overheating, although no significant injuries were reported. Lunera is preventing further risks by advising consumers to stop using the product and contact them for a full refund.
