Halloween Flashlight Recall


Halloween flashlights are being recalled because they can overheat and melt.
.
These flashlights were sold at Target stores during August and September of this year.
.
This recall involves two types of Halloween-themed flashlights:
.
Mini Flashlights - The mini flashlights have a key ring extending from the bottom and were sold in a pack of three colors: orange, green and black. The orange and purple packaging has "Mini Flashlights (3 Pack)" printed on the front and "DGI", "Made in China" and "DPCI# 234-02-1813" printed on the back.
.
Standard Size Flashlights - Also included in the recall are standard sized flashlights with a black handle and an orange top. The flashlights were sold with six stencils in various colors and images: a pumpkin, ghost, spider, cat, witch and skull & cross-bones. "Flashlight with Stencil" is printed on the front and "Tien Hsing," "Made in China" and "234 02 1838" is printed on the back of the packaging.
.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says they have received reports of several of the flashlights melting, including one case where a person's hand was burned.
.
If you have one of the flashlights you should stop using it and return it to target for a full refund.
For additional information, contact Target at (800) 440-0680.
