CFL Light Bulb Warning

The eRumor tells the story of a woman who accidentally dropped and broke an energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL). After calling the store from which she bought it and being referred to a state agency, she was told to call a professional hazardous waste clean-up company, which told her it was going to cost more than $2,000 to deal with the problem. The email warns about the downside of the CFLs.
