From popular night lights to licorice, several potentially dangerous products have been recalled by manufacturers and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
About 26,000 Energizer night lights sold at Target were recalled after nine reports of overheating.
The recall involves Energizer LED night lights with model number NLPLROT and date codes between January 2010 and January 2011. Target stores sold for about $6 nationwide. Consumers should unplug them and contact Energizer at www.energizer.com.
There may be a danger in your laundry room if you have one of 21,000 recalled gas dryers.
Various models and serial numbers of LG Electronics dryers and Kenmore Elite gas dryers have been recalled because the gas valve can fail to shut off, causing the dryer to continue to heat even after the drying cycle is complete. Some consumers and clothing have been burned or scorched.
Appliance stores and Sears sold the affected dryers in 2009 and 2010. Consumers should contact LG or Sears for a repair. For more information on the serial numbers: www.cpsc.gov.
