In April 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Cree, Inc. for allegedly deceptively advertising the lifespan of its LED light bulbs as being at least 13 years and up to 45+ years (or between 15,000 and 35,000 hours) when, according to plaintiffs, the bulbs do not last for the advertised period of time. (Wedra et al v. Cree, Inc.
, Case No. 19-cv-3162, S. D. NY.)
