Home Fire Leads to Recall of 143,000 Night LightsJuly 23, 2015
On Tuesday, retail giant Target recalled approximately 143,000 Circo Night Lights due to a known fire hazard.
The night lights in question, which are themed for use in children’s rooms, can overheat when in use. This can lead to melting of the night light itself and, in one instance reported to Target, led to a home fire. While the reported fire caused damage to property only, personal injuries and death frequently result due to malfunctions of defective products.
As the importer of the Chinese manufactured night lights, Target has recalled all of the following Circo models:
- Hedgehog (Pink) 060-02-1397
- Bird (Blue) 060-02-1398
- Rocket (Yellow) 060-02-1399
- Dino Egg (Orange) 060-02-1400
- Soccer Ball (White) 060-02-1401
- Shark (Green) 060-02-1402
The affected models were sold between October 2014 and May 2015
If Your Child is Injured, You Need to Speak to an Experienced Child Injury Lawyer
Unfortunately, the same sort of manufacturing, design, and other product defects that we regularly see in automobiles and appliances also affect products intended for children. Night lights, electronics, bicycles, unsafe toys, and sporting equipment are just a few of the consumer products that cause injuries to children every single day.
As a parent, the safety of your child is your top priority. You have a right to expect manufacturers and sellers of products to make your child’s safety a priority, too. When companies put unreasonably dangerous products into your child’s hands, the consequences can be tragic.
If your child was injured by a defective product or due to negligence, contact an Ohio child injury lawyer at Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA for a free consultation.Back To Blog
