I have 4 Cree LED T8 tubes in my kitchen light. I started smelling something like plastic burning. This went on for a few days. Then I noticed one of the bulbs in the kitchen light was out. Upon opening the fixture I discovered one of the Cree T8 LED tubes had burned through on the back side !!!

This is very disturbing.
