Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and pose a danger to the environment.
Some may be required to pay for disposal of fluorescent bulbs.
If the bulb breaks, it contaminates it's surroundings including food. Proper clean up can be expensive.
LED's use less energy than a Compact Fluorescent for the same light output
