An LED lamp from Lunera Lighting is now subject to a recall due to a hazard posed to consumers.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling its Helen GX23 LED lamps after reports indicate that the product can overheat, exposing individuals to fire, burn and electric shock hazards. About 60,000 lamps are included in the announcement.

The recalled items are 13 watt industrial lamps. The dimmable lamps are white and measure 6 inches long by 1.25 inches wide by 0.75 inches thick. The Lunera logo is printed on the front on the lamp at one end. Model numbers HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-2700-G3, HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-3000-G3, HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-3500-G3, and HN-H-UNV-GX23-13W-4000-G3 appear on the back of the connector. The date code, ranging from 1501 to 1552, is stamped on the bottom of the connector.

The lamps were sold at FSG, Grainger, Nedco, Standard Electric, other Lunera industrial/commercial retailers, and online from October 2015 to December 2015 for about $25.

Lunera has received 11 reports of lamps overheating. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lamps and contact the company for a full refund.
