Willmar, MN—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Molenaar LLC, have voluntarily recalled about 315,000 Electroluminescent night lights over a possible shock or fire hazard the product poses. The CPSC announced the recall on September 23, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the night lights can become hot to the touch, which can cause them to melt, resulting in a possible shock and fire.
The CPSC reported, “Two models of the night lights are being recalled. One model, Model No. 2019, is shaped like a house. The other, Model No. 2017, is square-shaped with a rounded top. The night lights glow green when plugged into an electrical outlet. “71980 U.S.A.” is molded into the night light’s back panel, just above the brass outlet prongs. The night lights may have the brand names or logos of various companies printed on the front.
The recalled night lights were distributed by various companies as a free promotion product, which was imprinted with the various company names. The night lights were distributed between October 2001 and November 2009.
Consumers are advised to throw the night lights away.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Molenaar at (877) 719-4442 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.miline.com.
