Night Light Recall
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 02, 2012 in Defective Products
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and AmeriTac are recalling LED Night Lights. The nights lights are being recalled due to an electrical short circuit that cause it to overheat, smolder, or melt, creating a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
AmerTac is recalling three of its night light models: Amerelle, Amertac and Everyday Basics. Each model has two model numbers, one on the packaging and one on the back of the night light. All three models will have the model number "71190" or "71190A" on the back of the night light. The Amerlle's packaging model number is "71190". The model number on the Amertac's package is "32785" and the Everyday Basics packaging model number is "076092".
The defective night lights were sold at hardware stores, home centers and lighting shows from March 2009 through October 2010. Consumers should immediately remove the night lights from the wall sockets and contact the company about receiving a refund. To find out more about the recall, visit AmeriTac's website.
