Target Lamp Recall

Target will recall 13,000 children’s lamps because they may overheat, causing the adhesive inside the lamp socket to melt and roam into the bulb socket. The cooled glue may adhere to the light bulb base which makes it hard to remove the light bulb base. Two risks: (1) the bulb exploding in your hand (dangerous but no real risk to your child), and (2) melted glue could bleed to the electrical components of the lamp causing a fire.

The lamps were sold between January and April of this year. There have been six reports of glue on the lamp socket melting and migrating into the bulb area of the socket. But, thankfully, no injuries have been reported.
