Compact fluorescent lamp – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Broken CFL bulbs release mercury vapors which are harmful to human and ecological health. The EPA has a page dedicated to clean-up of broken CFL Bulbs.[24] Although mercury in these bulbs is a health hazard,[24] special handling upon breakage is currently not printed on the packaging of household CFL bulbs in many countries. It is important to note that the amount of mercury released by one bulb can exceed U.S. federal guidelines for chronic exposure. [25][26]
