CPSC, Spencer Gifts/DAPY Announce Recall of Neon Art Prints

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Spencer Gifts Inc./DAPY of Pleasantville, N.J., is voluntarily recalling approximately 510 "Neon Art Prints" that present a possible fire hazard due to faulty wiring. Spencer Gifts became aware of the problem when a fire broke out in one of its Philadelphia stores.

The "Neon Art Prints," manufactured in South Carolina by "FALLON NEON," were sold nationwide from November through December 1994. The 25-inch by 36-inch prints, which sold for $129.99, come in three styles: "Hollywood Diner," "Night Hawks," and "Fab Four Neon." All three recalled models are mounted in plastic frames with the word "FALLON" printed on the back. "Neon Art Prints" with wooden frames are not involved in the recall.

Consumers who purchased a recalled "Neon Art Print" should immediately unplug the item and return it to a Spencer Gifts/DAPY store for a full refund. For further information, please call the Spencer Gifts Customer Service Information Center at (800) 762-0419 (East Coast) or (800) 321-2497 (West Coast).
