Target stores, in cooperation with the CPSC, announced a voluntary recall of Halloween Flashlights because they can overheat and melt, posing a burn hazard to consumers.
To this date, Target has received eight reports of the flashlights overheating and melting, including one report of burns to the hand.
Two types of Halloween-themed flashlights are included in the recall: mini flashlights and flashlights sold with stencils. More details and product examples can be found on the CPSC Web site.
The flashlights were sold at Target stores nationwide from August 2009 through September 2009.
Consumers should stop using the recalled items and return them to any Target store for a refund.
