Target recalls 6-piece LED flashlight sets due to fire hazards
MINNEAPOLIS (KABC) -- A fire hazard has triggered the recall of about 55,000 six-piece LED flashlight sets sold exclusively at Target stores.
When turned on, the flashlights can apparently heat up, smoke or melt, posing fire and burn hazards.
They were sold at Target stores nationwide from October 2010 through December 2011.
The flashlight sets are made of silver plastic with black rubber around the handle and light base. They were sold in sets of six, including two small flashlights about 3 inches long, two medium flashlights about 6 inches long and two large flashlights about 7 1/2 inches long.
Target has received reports of four incidents with the flashlights, including two minor burn injuries to consumers' hands.
Consumers should immediately stop using the flashlights and return them to any Target store for a full refund. For more information, consumers can contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
