Halloween Flashlight Recall

Halloween flashlights are being recalled because they can overheat and melt.

These flashlights were sold at Target stores during August and September of this year.

This recall involves two types of Halloween-themed flashlights:

Mini Flashlights - The mini flashlights have a key ring extending from the bottom and were sold in a pack of three colors: orange, green and black. The orange and purple packaging has "Mini Flashlights (3 Pack)" printed on the front and "DGI", "Made in China" and "DPCI# 234-02-1813" printed on the back.

Standard Size Flashlights - Also included in the recall are standard sized flashlights with a black handle and an orange top. The flashlights were sold with six stencils in various colors and images: a pumpkin, ghost, spider, cat, witch and skull & cross-bones. "Flashlight with Stencil" is printed on the front and "Tien Hsing," "Made in China" and "234 02 1838" is printed on the back of the packaging.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says they have received reports of several of the flashlights melting, including one case where a person's hand was burned.

If you have one of the flashlights you should stop using it and return it to target for a full refund. For additional information, contact Target at (800) 440-0680.
