The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps because of a problem with wires being too close to the circuit board and posing a fire hazard. The recall affects roughly 300,000 lamps having a batch number beginning with 584894 or 10128 and also contains one of the following model numbers: 1642433, 1641523, 1628626, 1645729, 1641522, or 1645853.
While no injuries have been reported, the lamp’s maker, Innovage LLC, of Foothill Ranch, California, has received 11 different reports of short circuiting including three which resulted in fires and property damage. The lamps were sold nationwide at retailers such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, JCPenney, Kohls and Toys “R” Us and also online on Amazon, Macy’s and Overstock.com between June 2010 and March of 2012. If you own one of the lamps issued in the recall, you are urged to contact Innovage for instructions on receiving a full refund.
