August 2015: In accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, OSRAM Sylvania, Inc. has decided that certain OSRAM Sylvania-brand H5001 and H5006 sealed beam headlamps fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment. Accordingly, we are initiating this safety recall.
Please note, this is a voluntary recall and is being initiated by OSRAM because not all parts produced meet the required beam pattern. However, in some cases, the effect of the out-of-spec condition may not be noticeable to the driver or oncoming traffic.
If you have purchased one of these products, please review the below information carefully.
This campaign involves Type 1C1 (H5001) and 2C1 (H5006) sealed beam headlamps manufactured from 2/3/2014 to 6/19/2015. The date of manufacture is listed on the back of the lamp in the format "mmddyy" to the right of the lamp number, either H5001 or H5006, as shown in the image below.
Products manufactured or shipped on or after July 20, 2015 (Date Code 072015) are not affected.
If you own one of these recalled lamps, please return the lamp to the retailer where you purchased the lamp for a refund or replacement. If you have any questions, please contact OSRAM Sylvania Customer Service at Hillsboro.email@example.com or 1.800.729.3777.
