Shock and Overheating Risk Leads to Recall of 19,100 Disco Lights
Yet another product is being recalled because of an overheating threat. It’s important that parents in particular pay attention to this next safety directive, though, as it concerns an item designed for children who probably aren’t as up to date with the latest recall news as their parents might be.
The New Albany, Ohio-based Tween Brands announced the recall, which pertains to Style my Room by Justice Disco Lights. The recall affects those versions of the item with a style number of 901651 (star disco light) and 900528 (black disco light). Around 19,100 of these seven inch tall lamps are encompassed within the scope of the recall, and each was available across the country at Justice retailers between May and November of last year. They cost $24 at that time.
Users can actually gain access to the lamp base’s wiring. This poses a shock threat, and the lamp can itself overheat. One incident of the lamp overheating has been reported, as has one occurrence of an individual experiencing shock upon making contact with the wiring.
To make sure that none of these situations befall you, the lamp should be unplugged as soon as possible. The items can then be brought back to the store, where a refund will be given.
