Federal regulators are sounding the alarm about a possible fire danger in the bedrooms of thousands of children. They've launched a recall of about 300,000 Discovery Kids lamps.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been 11 reports of fire due to short-circuiting.
The lamps affected feature rotating marine and safari scenes.
How to Spot The Recalled Lamps
The words "Discovery Kids" are printed on the top-left corner of the product. The recalled products have both an 11-digit batch number that begins with either 584894 or 10128 and a model number of 1628626, 1642433, 1641522, 1641523, 1645729, or 1645853.
Batch numbers can be found imprinted in the plastic underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging. Model numbers can be found on stickers placed underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging near the barcode.
The lamps have been sold at retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond, Bonton, JCPenney, Kohl's, Office Max and Toys R Us, as well as other online retailers.
Call for Refunds
The U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission is telling consumers to immediately stop using the lamps. Consumers can get instructions on obtaining a refund by contacting Innovage at (888)232-1535 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
