Do LED light bulbs give off heat?

An often-quoted advantage of LEDs is that they don’t produce heat, and are cool to the touch. Fact or fiction? In one sense this is true: LEDs are cool to the touch because they generally don’t produce heat in the form of infrared (IR) radiation (unless of course they are IR LEDs).
