CSA Group, a leading standards development organization and a global provider of product testing and certification services, is notifying consumers, regulators and retailers of type HR16 halogen lightbulbs sold under the Litetronics brand that have been recalled by the manufacturer, Shanghai Haifeng Electric Lighting Co.

The affected products were sold from April 2015 to April 2016 under the catalogue/model number L-3750 and are marked “Litetronics”. The centre contacts in the bulb can soften and break, or fall off over time, which represents a potential shock or fire hazard due to poor electrical contact.
