Dollar Tree recalls Halloween lanterns due to overheating
LOS ANGELES (KFSN) -- The consumer product safety commission and Dollar Tree stores are recalling nearly 700,000 battery-operated Halloween lanterns because of overheating.
The plastic lanterns are shaped like a pumpkin, ghost or skull.
Officials said the bulb can get too hot, causing fires or children to get burned.
The government also said parents should look for flame-resistant costumes without baggy sleeves, long capes or long skirts that could catch fire or cause children to trip.
