Read here. GE, the company that the Obama administration and Democrats love to provide special regulatory and income tax breaks to, appears to be now producing and marketing inferior products to the American public. Namely, Chinese-made CFL, mercury-laden light bulbs that may die well under their 8,000 hour life expectancy, in addition to being more costly than the former U.S. made GE incandescent bulbs.
Of course, General Electric fully supported and championed the idea of closing its American light bulb factories and moving the production to the Chinese environmental hellhole. If Americans were producing these GE CFL light bulbs instead of the Chinese, would GE potentially be facing a product recall and class action lawsuit? Probably not. Good news concerning GE, though: they don't sell Chinese dog food or milk to Americans.
"The bulb claims an 8000 hour life.....Well, here it is, all of at most 2 months later, and the bulb did the old “ON fine… wait a bit… OFF… 1/2 hour later ON… then off… 2 hours later ON… then off… and stay off for 2 days…” all the time with the power left turned on.....Why should GE be any different.....They are just another Chinese Curly Bulb remarketer hawking product.....But I’d not bother buying GE CFL bulbs if you can get other folks stuff. It’s all cheap Made In China anyway, so don’t bother to “pay up for the name” as the “Name” is not buying you anything in my experience. At least with GE."
