Energizer Night Light Sold Exclusively at Target Recalled Due to Burn Hazard

By Lipton Law on August 31, 2012 - No comments

The Energizer Rotating Night Light, imported by Energizer and manufactured in China by Ningbo Sun-alps Industry Develop Co. Ltd, has been recalled due to a potential burn hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with the St. Louis-based company, announced a voluntary recall of the night light, which affects approximately 260,000 units. The night lights can overheat and smoke, posing a potential burn hazard to consumers.

Presently, Energizer has received nine reports of the night light overheating, including three reports of property damage, but fortunately no injuries have been reported.

The Energizer LED Rotating Night Light was sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide for about $6 from February 2010 through July 2012. The night lights are white and have an LED light inside an adjustable dome on top. The model number for the recalled night light is “NLPLROT,” which can be found on the side of the night light, and the date codes between 0110 (January 2010) and 0111 (January 2011) are stamped in a circle on the back of the night light.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop use of the product and unplug the recalled night light. Customers can contact Energizer at (800) 383-7323 for instructions on returning the night light and to receive a $7 coupon towards the purchase of another Energizer product.
