CHILDREN'S TASK LAMPS
DETAILS: Circo Children's Task Lamps imported by Target Corp. of Minneapolis, Minn., and sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and Target.com from January to April 2011. The lamps were manufactured in China.
WHY: Lamps may overheat, causing the adhesive inside the lamp socket to melt and move into the bulb area of the socket. The cooled glue can adhere to the light bulb base and make the bulb difficult to remove, which can result in a broken light bulb and poses a risk of laceration. Melted flammable glue that migrates onto the electrical components of the lamp poses a risk of fire.
INCIDENTS: Target has received six reports of glue on the lamp socket melting and migrating into the bulb area of the socket. No injuries have been reported.
HOW MANY: Approximately 13,000.
