Tween Brands Recalls Its Disco Lights Due to Electric Shock Risk
Tween Brands has recalled about 19,100 units of its “Style My Room by Justice” black disco lights, sold at Justice stores. The recall includes both the black disco light sold under style number 900528 and the star disco light sold under style number 901651. Both lamps pose an unreasonable risk of overheating , which may lead to fires, and to electric shocks.
The lamps are about seven inches tall and consist of a four-inch diameter ball with multi-colored plastic panels, which sits on top of a three-inch high black plastic base. The light inside the plastic ball lights up when the on-off switch on the base is pressed, which sends multicolored beams out of the panels. The style number for each recalled light appears in the lower left corner of the product’s label, which is on the back of the package.
So far, Tween Brands has received one report of a lamp overheating and one report of a lamp causing an electrical shock. The lamps were sold at Justice stores and online at www.shopjustice.com between May and November 2012. They were imported by Tween Brands of New Albany, Ohio and were manufactured in China.
Customers should unplug the recalled lamps and return them to any Justice store, where they will receive a full refund.
