A voluntary recall by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Camsing Global, affects 10,000 LED night lights, according to a press release on Friday.
Five different consumers have reported problems with the LED night lights. The consumers described the night lights overheating, leading the product to melt or smolder, potentially causing burns. No injuries have been reported as a result of use.
The light, manufactured in China, is described as being about 1 ¾ inches wide and 3 and ¾ inches high, with a white or blue LED bulb, a clear bulb cover, and a plastic white base. Stamped on the back of this plastic white base is “Model SBD01”, “E314462”, and “Made in China”. The light is marketed as containing flame retardant properties and uses electrical power from an outlet.
The light was used a promotional product from December 2010 to March 2011. Companies distributed them for free, and printed their name on the LED night light.
If you have one of these LED night lights, you should cease using the product immediately and throw it away. If you have questions, you should contact Camsing Global, the distributer.
