American Tack & Hardware Co. (AmerTac) recently announced the recall of around 227,000 LED Night Lights due to a fire and burn hazard. An electrical short circuit in the night light can cause it to overheat and smolder or melt, posing fire and burn hazards.
So far the company has received 25 reports of night lights smoking, burning, melting and charring. Fortunately no injuries have been reported.
There are three types of AmerTrac night lights being recalled. Go to the CPSC recall page for name and model number.
Consumers who own one of the recalled lights should stop using them immediately, remove them from the wall sockets and contact AmerTrac for a full refund.
