About 1.86 million EnergySave, also known as Marathon or Marathon Classic Compact Fluorescent Dimmable Reflector lamps, have been recalled by Philips Lighting Company of Somerset, N.J. The glue that attaches the glass outer envelope or globe to the body of the lamp can fail allowing the glass outer envelope to fall and strike persons and objects below, posing a laceration hazard to consumers. Philips has received 700 reports of incidents where the glue failed and the glass outer envelope of the lamp fell, including two reports of minor injury and three reports of minor property damage.
This recall involves models R30, R40 and PAR 38 manufactured between March 2007 and May 2010. Model numbers are printed on the white ceramic area at the base of the lamps. For boxed products, the UPC number is on the bottom of the box. For products in blister cards, the UPC is at the top right corner of the back of the package. Date codes are located on the lamps themselves, either stamped into the metal gold base of the lamp or in the white ceramic area with other product information.
The lamps were sold at grocery and home center stores nationwide, online retailers, and professional electrical distributors from March 2007 through July 2011, for between $11 and $24. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lamps and contact Philips to receive instructions on how to receive a free replacement lamp.
