Toy Flashlights and Work Lights Recalls

 

This press release consists of two recalls. Please choose the appropriate recall below.

- Toy flashlights - Sonca Products Ltd., of Hong Kong, is voluntarily recalling about 5,500 toy flashlights because the spring in the flashlight's battery compartment can dislodge, causing the batteries to overheat or leak.

- Work Lights - New Buffalo Corp., of Chesterfield Mo., is recalling about 2,800 Buffalo Fluorescent Work Lights because the lights can have undersized wiring and exposed electrical parts on the plug, posing a shock and fire hazard.
