He has seen the light and noticed the danger
Those were the sounds coming from the laundry room in the basement of our house.
Upon investigation, I discovered a compact fluorescent light bulb had blown completely out of the receptacle and smashed into many fragments on the floor.
The broken bits even landed in the laundry items, to which my wife had been attending a minute earlier.
In view of this, I immediately removed the few compact fluorescent light bulbs in our house and will not be using any in the future as they are dangerous.
I also contacted BC Hyrdro’s PowerSmart department, which has been promoting these types of bulbs in the past few years, to report the danger that exists in using them.
As well, I contacted the B.C. Safety Authority in person.
Staff there expressed concern and said there is a history of such breakages revealed online.
