About 227,000 LED Night Lights have been recalled by American Tack & Hardware Co. Inc. (AmerTac), of Saddle River, N.J. An electrical short circuit in the night light can cause it to overheat and smolder or melt, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. AmerTac has received 25 reports of the night lights smoking, burning, melting and charring. No injuries have been reported. Three AmerTac night lights are being recalled. Each has a model name and two model numbers. The model name and a secondary model number appear only on the packaging. The basic model number appears on the back of the night light. The night lights are rectangular, about 2-3/16 inches high, 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/4 inches deep.
The front housings for each are either white- or nickel-colored plastic with four horizontal vents and a round light sensor above the top vent. The backs of the night lights are gray plastic with the AmerTac™ logo, the basic model number, “SY” identification code and “ETL” molded into them. Only models bearing “SY” on the back are being recalled. The lights were sold at hardware stores, home centers and lighting showrooms from March 2009 through October 2010 for about $6. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled night lights, remove them from the wall sockets and contact them for instructions on receiving a full refund.
