LAMPS

DETAILS: Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps imported by Innovage LLC of Foothill Ranch, Calif.; sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Bonton, JCPenney, Kohls, Office Max, Toys "R'' Us stores nationwide and online through Amazon, Ideeli, JCPenney, Kohls, Macy's and Overstock from June 2010 through March 2012. The Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps feature rotating films with marine or safari scenes. The words "Discovery Kids" are printed on the front top-left corner of the product. Model numbers can be found on stickers placed underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging near the barcode. The lamps were manufactured in China.

WHY: The placement of internal wires near the circuit board can cause electrical short-circuiting and sparking, posing a fire and a burn hazard to consumers.

INCIDENTS: Innovage has received 11 reports of short circuiting. This includes three reports of lamps catching fire, which led to property damage. No injuries reported.

HOW MANY: About 300,000.

FOR MORE: Contact Innovage at 888-232-1535 Monday through Friday between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. EDT, or visit the firm's website at http://www.innovage.net or http://www.lamprecall.org.
