Hurricane Style Lights Recalled Over Risk of Fire Hazard

Posted on February 1, 2012

Even though you may have just recently put away your Christmas ornaments, now comes a reason to dig them back out.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported that Nantucket Distributing Co. announced a recall of around 4,500 Hurricane Style Lights which were imported from China and sold at Christmas Tree Shops in the Midwest, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic.

The item in question is a circular lamp with a movable handle, a mini light bulb and a white metal basket.  It comes with a pink, green, or blue glass insert.  A flaw can occur in which an electrical short in the lamp’s wiring poses a fire hazard.  Already, one report of smoke emanating from the item has come to light, though thankfully, no injuries have been reported at this time.

The items were sold between December of 2010 and November 2011.  They can be returned to a Christmas Tree Shop for a complete refund.

No doubt a majority of people out there have already put away their holiday decorations, but as a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, it’s important that you not put off returning the item in question just because it’s in storage.  Before you know it, the holidays will be here, at which point it will be all too easy to forget about the recall.  As a lawyer, I hope all of the affected units get returned before they cause damage.
