Target Recalls Halloween Flashlights Due to Burn Hazard

Target has announced the recall of approximately 610,000 Halloween flashlights manufactured by DGI, LLC of Warren N.J. and Tien Hsing of Hong Kong sold exclusively nationwide by Target, because the flashlights may overheat causing the plastic to melt posing a risk of burning the user. The flashlights subject to this recall are two types, namely, a Halloween-themed flashlight/mini-flashlight and a flashlight sold with stencils. 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. The standard size flashlights also have 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 recalled flashlights were sold nationwide from August 2009 to September 2009 for approximately $1.00; the mini-flashlights were sold for $2.50. Consumer should immediately stop using the products and return the product to any Target store for a full refund.
