Dura Kleen (USA) Inc. Recalls Nightlights

Night lites recalledBrooklyn, NY  (SafetyAlerts) - Dura Kleen (USA) Inc. said today it is voluntarily recalling about 459,000 nightlights. The nightlights' electrical connections are loose, they are made from flammable plastic and the power switch does not work. The nightlights pose shock and fire hazards to consumers.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Dura Kleen are not aware of any injuries associated with these nightlights. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The nightlights consist of a small light fixture that uses a 5- watt bulb that plugs into a wall electrical outlet. The light bulb white bases are imprinted with "Made in China for Dura Kleen USA Inc." The night lights have different colored shades, including purple, green, yellow and red, with different designs. Other lights have opaque decorative shades molded in the form of religious figures.

Discount stores nationwide sold the nightlights from March 1999 through August 2000 for about $1.

Consumers should stop using the nightlights immediately, and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. For more information, call CPSC at (800) 638-2772 anytime.
