Light bulbs recalled by H-E-B

A variety of GTC halogen light bulbs are being recalled by H-E-B due to the potential for shattering.

H-E-B issued the recall Thursday, which involves approximately 2.5 million units.

The company received 14 reports of the light bulbs shattering while in a lamp or light fixture, prompting the recall. Two individuals also reported receiving minor injuries when the bulbs shattered.

According to the H-E-B press release, the "GTC Natural Light" halogen bulbs come in blue and red cardboard packaging and were sold in packages of 2 or 4 bulbs, in either soft or clear white colors. The bulbs involved in the recall include 25 watt, 40 watt, 60 watt, 75 watt and 100 watt varieties.

H-E-B advises customers who may have purchased the bulbs to stop using them immediately and return them to the nearest H-E-B store for a full refund.
