FTC Sends Second Round of Checks in Lights of America Matter
The FTC is mailing 1,352 checks, totaling more than $68,000, to consumers who bought Lights of America LED light bulbs and filed a claim.
The FTC sued Lights of America Inc. for overstating the light output and life expectancy of their LED bulbs, and falsely comparing the brightness of their LED bulbs with that of other light bulbs. A federal court ordered the defendants to pay $21 million to the FTC to provide refunds and banned the defendants from misrepresenting material facts about lighting products.
The FTC previously mailed 499,105 checks totaling more than $14.4 million to people who bought Lights of America light bulbs. The FTC then identified additional eligible consumers through a claims process.
The claims process is still open. If you bought these light bulbs and have not received a check, file a claim here.
If you receive a check, please cash it within 60 days.
