Philips Lighting Recalls Metal Halide Lamps Due to Burn and Laceration Hazards

This recall involves the Philips Energy Advantage Ceramic Metal Halide Lamps model CDM330. They are designed as energy efficient replacements for traditional 400W quartz metal halide lamps installed in magnetic ballasts and intended for use in high-ceiling industrial, retail and commercial applications. The lamps were sold in both clear and coated versions. Each lamp includes an etching, located either at the base of the lamp or on the ovoid of the lamps, that displays the relevant date code, along with Philips’ name, wattage (330W) and the model (CDM330). Affected lamps can be identified with one of the following date codes:

Each lamp includes an etching, located either at the base of the lamp or on the ovoid of the lamps, that displays the relevant date code, along with Philips’ name, wattage (330W) and the model (CDM330).
