U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(CPSC) on Wednesday announced the voluntary recall of about 260,000 Energizer Rotating Night Lights. Consumers are warned to unplug and stop using the lights immediately.
The CPSC says the lights, sold exclusively at Target, can overheat and smoke, posing a burn hazard. According to the recall notice, no injuries have been reported, but Energizer has received nine reports of the night lights overheating and three reports of minor property damage.
The night lights are white and have an LED light inside an adjustable dome on top. They are about two inches wide by two-and-a-half inches long. Model number "ENLPLROT" and date codes between 0110 (for January 2010) through 0111 (for January 2011) are included in this recall. The model number is stamped onto the side of the night light. The date code is stamped in a circle on the back of the night light.
Energizer is based in St. Louis, but the recalled product is manufactured in China.
