LED lighting sensitive to voltage fluctutations?

I have purchased and installed 3 GU10 LED bulbs that I placed in 3" recessed light cans. The previous fixture was a standard 4" fluorescent fixture that worked fine for 20 years. I have noticed that now when I turn off the ceiling fan in my adjacent bedroom, the LED bulbs will turn off for a second and then turn back on. I believe that both are on the same circuit breaker. Is this something to be concerned about?

This does sound bizarre. Seems as though a small inductive spike when you open the circuit to the fan motor triggers something inside the LED's, shutting them down for a spell.
Can't be sure, but smells like a marginal LED design from here. Try a different make.
