WHITE ENCLOSED/CONTAINED LED HOUSEHOLD LIGHT BULB FOR RECESS

A “Utilitech Pro” LED lamp bulb (model E359760, 17.5W, 120V, 60Hz, 158mA, 1100 lumens. UL) installed in a kitchen ceiling recessed can light caught fire while on and burned through the bulb housing causing smoke and burn damage to the the light fixture and surrounding ceiling. Fire was extinguished after turning the light fixture (switch) off with no further damage. The light “flickered” momentarily before making a popping noise and then combusting. The bulb had been installed for between 9-12 months. Original purchase was from either [REDACTED] or Amazon (uncertain which). Attached photos are of affected bulb side by side with an unaffected bulb from the same purchase which was installed in a recessed fixture next to the one which caught on fire.
