Target Night Light Recall Issued Due To Fire Hazard
More than 140,000 night lights sold exclusively at Target stores have been recalled following reports of the batteries overheating, including at least one incident that resulted in a fire.
The Target Circo Night Light recall was announced by the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 21, following at least two complaints that suggest the light’s battery may overheat and melt the plastic, posing a potential fire hazard.
While no injuries have been reported in connection with the recalled night nights, at least one fire started from the product, which caused property damage to the outlet, wall and nearby dresser.
