Saddle River, NJ — LED night lights by American Tack & Hardware Co. Inc. (AmerTac) are being recalled for burn and fire hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC and AmerTac announced the nationwide product recall on March 1, 2012.

The night lights were recalled after finding an electrical short circuit can cause the night light to overheat and smolder or melt, which poses a burn and fire hazard to consumers.

“Three AmerTac night lights are being recalled. Each has a model name and two model numbers. The model name and a secondary model number appear only on the packaging. The basic model number appears on the back of the night light. The night lights are rectangular, about 2-3/16 inches high, 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/4 inches deep. The front housings for each are either white- or nickel-colored plastic with four horizontal vents and a round light sensor above the top vent. The backs of the night lights are gray plastic with the AmerTac™ logo, the basic model number, ‘SY’ identification code and ‘ETL’ molded into them. Only models bearing ‘SY’ on the back are being recalled,” reported the CPSC.

The following night lights are involved in this recall:

• Amerelle

• Amertac

• Everyday Basics

Consumers are advised to contact AmerTac for instructions on how to receive a full refund.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact AmerTac at (800) 420-7511 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit or
