Target Recalls Children’s Task Lamps Due to Laceration and Fire Hazards

Target is recalling about 13,000 Circo Children’s Task Lamps because they could overheat, causing the glue inside the socket of the lamp to melt into the bulb socket area. Cooled glue can then stick to the lightbulb base, which could cause the bulb to break when consumers attempt to remove it. The glue could also cause a fire hazard.

Target has received at least six reports of this problem happening, but no injuries have been reported so far. These recalled children’s task lamps were sold exclusively at Target stores and at in 2011 for about $13 each. You can take your lamp to Target for a full refund. For additional information, contact Target Guest Relations at 800-440-0680.
