I received a response from GE about my light bulb ignition blog post.
Dear Mr. (Mully410),I'll keep you posted...
Thank you for contacting GE Lighting. I am happy to assist you.
I am sorry you have experienced a problem with one of our products, and assure you that feedback on product quality is important to us.
There can be smoking at the end of life on CFL's on rare occasions. This is generally not cause for alarm and we have yet to see a case where there is an actual flame. Our products are UL listed and the plastic housing is made of a material designed not to sustain combustion.
All GE bulbs have a rated life warranty, and we are glad to file a product claim on your behalf. You should receive a response within 15 days via US Postal Service.
Please retain the failed product until you are contacted in writing. Product Services periodically requests the product be returned for testing, and if so, a pre-paid mailer or shipping label will be provided. Your reference number is: 2010015428.
If you have already disposed of the product, please follow the instructions in the written response.
To make sure you have the most efficient product for your application, please visit our FAQs on www.gelighting.com.
