The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday that Target has recalled roughly 13,000 Circo Children’s Task Lamps. The lamps run the risk of over-heating, which can cause the adhesive in the lamp socket to melt into the bulb socket. This makes the bulb difficult to remove without breaking, posing a laceration hazard. The lamps were sold at Target stores nationwide between January 2011 and April 2011, retailing for around $13.
Consumers should immediately stop using these lamps and contact Target Guest Relations for a full refund at (800) 440-0680 or www.target.com. Visit the USCPSC website for more information on the recalled lamps.
