Halloween Projection Flashlights Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

By Kelly Balamuth on December 13, 2011

The U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Nygala, Inc. recently issued a recall of about 10,000 flashlights because they may pose a safety risk, according to the CPSC’s official website.

The flashlights, which were sold during the recent Halloween holiday season, are made of orange plastic and feature images of witches, cats, and bats on the handles. They came with six plastic inserts which, when put across the top of the flashlight, allowed it to project Halloween-themed images on a wall or other surface. The UPC code printed on the packaging is 677916518266.

The flashlights are being recalled because the plastic handle can melt, which can result in serious burn injuries or fires. So far, Nygala, Inc. has heard of one instance in which a flashlight melted, but it was not revealed whether or not someone was injured by the accident.

The flashlights are operated by two AA batteries, which should be removed immediately to reduce the risk of overheating. Flashlights should be taken away from children and stored in a safe place and can be returned to the store for a full refund.

When we buy products, especially fun products to share with children, we expect them to be safe – not to endanger us or our loved ones with an increased risk of burns. If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product, the skilled San Francisco injury lawyers at Balamuth Harrington can help. We have the legal resources and the courtroom experience to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve. For a free and confidential consultation, call us today at (888) 254-1234.
