AmerTac Recalls Night Lights Due to Fire and Burn Hazard

TORONTO, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - American Tack & Hardware Co. Inc. (AmerTac), of Saddle River, N.J. today announced a voluntary recall of the AmerTac™ Color Changing Night Light (Model No. 71193), AmerTac™ HiLo Night Light (Model No. 71194), and AmerTac™ HiLo Night Light (Model No. 327879).

An electrical short circuit in the night light can cause it to overheat and smolder or melt which can burn the consumer or result in a fire.  AmerTac has received 19 reports from the United States of the night lights smoking, burning and/or charring, including reports of  property damage and one report of a minor burn injury.  AmerTac has not received any reports of incidents with these night lights occurring in Canada.

Three night light models are being recalled, model numbers 71193, 71194 and 327879.  All three models have KML, ETL, the model number and the AmerTacTM logo molded on the back of the night lights' plastic housing.  Model number 71193 is a square shaped, white plastic unit with a flat translucent square window on the front and a button for changing the screen colour.  Model 71194 and 327879 resemble a computer mouse with white plastic housing and inset translucent windows on the front and sides.
