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.

The recall affects Energizer LED rotating night lights with model number NLPLROT and date codes between 0110 through 0111, representing January 2010 through January 2011. The night lights are white with an adjustable dome and LED inside. The model number is stamped on the side and the date code is stamped on the back inside of a circle.

The recalled night lights were sold exclusively at Target nationwide for about $6 from February 2010 through July 2012 and were manufactured by Ningbo Sun-alps Industry Develo Co. Ltd., of China.

The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the night lights immediately and contact Energizer on how to return the night lights in exchange for a $7 coupon for another Energizer product. Consumers with questions can contact Energizer at (800) 383-7323 or can visit the company’s website at
