About 8,100 Metal Halide Lamps have been recalled by Philips Lighting Company, of Bath, N.Y. The internal wiring can arc causing the lamp to catch fire or the glass to shatter. This poses fire and laceration hazards. The recalled items are egg-shaped, clear glass, 150-watt industrial metal halide lamps. They are about five inches long and have a medium base. Recalled lamps were manufactured between November 2012 and March 2013. “Philips,” “150W” “ALTO M142/0,” “Hg,” “USA 3A-1” and “MHC150/U/MP/4K” are stamped on the lamp. Each lamp comes in a protective cardboard sleeve. The Philips logo appears at the top of the protective sleeve on all sides. “MasterColor,” “Ceramic Metal Halide ED-17 Protected,” “Hg – Lamp Contains Mercury” are on the side of the sleeve. “MHC150/U/MP/4K ALTO” and Universal Product Code (UPC) “46677 37724” are on a label on the side of the sleeve. Philips says it has received one report of a failure that damaged a lamp, but apparently there has been no reports of injury or property damage.
The lamps were sold by professional electrical wholesale supply distributors sold the lamps for use by industrial and commercial property owners from November 2012 to April 2013 for about $20. The lamps have been installed in retail stores and recreational facilities. Consumers should immediately stop using the lamps and contact Philips for a full refund or a replacement. Philips will issue a refund as a credit to all distributors with recalled lamps in their inventories and will replace recalled lamps that have been installed at no cost to the consumer.
