It would be covered in the USA by UL standards.

If cheapskate importers choose to sell unapproved CFLs then THEY should pay the
bill. And be prosecuted and if necessary placed in insolvency and completely
shut down.

OTOF the twit who buys a CFL without a valid safety mark can expect what he
gets.

Increasingly. and especially in the EU, IEC standards for electrical safety
should make such problems extinct.

** As usual  -  Stevenson has not the faintest idea what he is crapping on
about.

 No compulsory labelling, warnings or fire safety standards for CFLs exist.

 They are sold like any other electronic product -  with EMC approval, basic
electrical safety and little else.

I do not know any US state that does not require its own electrical approval. At
Neve we used LA City approval which most other disrtricts were prefectly happy
with, as it was one of the toughest.

Pure UL approval would have been better but those guys are idiots.
