Washington, DC (WLTX) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Innovage LLC, announced a voluntary recall of Discovery Kids animated marine and safari lamps.
The company is recalling 300,000 of the lamps because the placement of internal wires near the circuit board can cause electrical short-circuiting and sparking, posing a fire and a burn hazard to consumers.
According to the press release, the recalled products have both an 11-digit batch number that begins with either 584894 or 10128 and a model number of 1628626, 1642433, 1641522, 1641523, 1645729, or 1645853. Batch numbers can be found imprinted in the plastic underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging. Model numbers can be found on stickers placed underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging near the barcode.
The lamps were sold nationwide from June 2010 through March 2012 for between $10 and $20 per unit.
Consumers who have the lamps in question should stop using them immediately and contact Innovage for instructions on how to receive a full refund.
