The Ecowaste Coalition, an ecology conservation group, on Saturday urged the government to strengthen the regulation on the selling of light-emitting diode (LED) lights. The warning was issued after counterfeit brands were discovered in Manila stores. The group purchased 20 brands of LED sets that did not contain the name of the manufacturer or distributor. The counterfeit brands were Admin, Bayanko, CATA, GaoGa, Hetachi, Hua, Mei, HXS, Kevico, LED Bulb Lamp, LED High Power Lamp, LHT, Ocho, Okes, Onestar, OTO, Rohstar, Star, Sunrise, XQG, and Xinmey LED products. The Ecowaste Coalition’s Project Protect Thony Dizon said the government should create a checklist to guide consumers in identifying counterfeits, and ensure the health and environmental safety of the LED lights being sold in stores.
