Fluorescent Spriral Bulb Recall

Check any mini-spiral fluorescents you may have....I just found that I had some that were covered under this recall, and I bought all mine at Canadian Tire, Zellers, and Wal-Mart shops in Calgary. These bulbs pose a reasonable fire-risk.

Most are perfectly safe, but this one batch of the Globe brand was faulty. I have something like 30 compact fluorescent spiral bulbs in use around my house....saves me a bundle in electricity.
