Target is recalling 143,000 Circo night lights because the battery can overheat and cause the night light to melt, posing a fire hazard. No injuries have been reported, but Target has received two reports of the lights overheating, including one report of a fire that damaged a dress, wall, and an electrical outlet.
The lights were sold at Target stores and online at target.com from October 2014 through May 2015 for about $15. These battery-operated night lights are 3.5 to 6 inches tall and come with an AC adapter. The night light collection includes a pink hedgehog, a blue bird, a yellow rocket, an orange dino egg, a white soccer ball and a green shark. A list of model numbers is available at the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
Consumers should immediately stop using and unplug the recalled night lights. They can be returned to any Target store for a full refund.
