Target Energizer Nightlight Recall: Risk of Overheating
About 260,000 Energizer night lights sold exclusively at target have been recalled, after reports suggest they may overheat and cause property damage.
The Target Energizer rotating night light recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on August 22, after Energizer received at least nine reports involving problems where the product overheated. In some cases, the night lights began to smoke and minor property damage was sustained in at least three cases.
The CPSC has determined that the Energizer nightlights pose a burn hazard for consumers, although no injuries have been reported to date.
