Circo children's task lamps

Company: Target Corp.

Quantity: 13,000.

Why? The lamps can overheat, causing the adhesive inside the lamp socket to melt and migrate into the bulb area of the socket.

Melted flammable glue that migrates onto the electrical components of the lamp poses a risk of fire.
