Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps have been recalled by Innovage due to fire and burn hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
About 300,000 Discovery Kids™ Animated Marine and Safari Lamps are involved. The defective lamps were made in China; imported by Innovage LLC, of Foothill Ranch, California; and sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Bonton, JCPenney, Kohls, Office Max, and Toys “R” Us stores, nationwide. The defective lamps were also sold from online retailers including Amazon, Ideeli, JCPenney, Kohls, Macy’s, and Overstock from June 2010 through March 2012. The lamps retailed for between $10 and $20.
The placement of internal wires near the circuit board can cause electrical short-circuiting and sparking, posing a fire and a burn hazard to consumers. To date, Innovage has received 11 reports of short circuiting, which includes three reports of lamps catching fire, which led to property damage. No injuries have been reported.
This large recall involves Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps that feature rotating films with marine or safari scenes. The words “Discovery Kids” are printed on the front, top-left corner of the product.
