    Of course bulbs only break on Saturday nights when TSC is out of the for-sure safe ones, right?

    Anyhow, I'm here at Lowe's looking at Syvania's 250w R40 bulb, not having much luck on google trying to find out about toxicity. Does anyone know if this one has toxic teflon on it?

    Thanks, Peeps!

    I have read that the bulbs that say shatterproof or splatterproof are the ones that have the Teflon coating. I had one that said splatterproof and so I took it back.
