In a news release, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Camsing Global LLC, announced the recall of approximately 10,000 units of LED nightlights.
This recall was initiated when the company discovered that the products could potentially overheat, smolder and melt in a way that could result in minor burns to consumers. The lights contain flame retardant materials, connect to electrical outlets and have a white or blue LED blub with a clear cover. These nightlights can be identified by “Model SBD01”, “E314462” and “Made in China” stamped on the bottom of the packaging. This product was distributed through various companies that used them as free promotional giveaways between December 2010 and March 2011.
Camsing Global LLC received five reports of the nightlights overheating, smoldering or melting, but no injuries related to this recall were reported. The company and CPSC are asking that consumers stop using the nightlights immediately and properly dispose of them. Consumers should be aware that it is illegal to resell any recalled consumer product.
As a Ventura personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen similar recalls of this nature. In my years as a personal injury lawyer, I’ve witnessed the damage recalled items like this have caused and I hope that no one is injured before they can all be disposed of properly.
