WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®, of Lebanon, Tenn., is voluntarily recalling about 27,000 motion lamps. Approximately 6,400 of those lamps were sold to consumers. Wires near the light's socket can become exposed, posing a risk of electric shock or electrocution to consumers.

There have been no reports of incidents or injuries. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recall involves the Pumpkin and Snowman model motion lamps. The ceramic lamps have liquid-filled globes that become warm and the heat moves the glitter inside. The Pumpkin lamp has orange liquid in its globe, straw hair and a burlap hat. The Snowman wears a black top hat and a red and black scarf. The Snowman's globe is filled with a clear liquid. On the bottom of each lamp is a sticker that reads, "Made in China."

Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores® sold the motion lamps nationwide from August 2002 through October 2002 for about $20.

Consumers should stop using and unplug these lamps immediately and contact Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® at (888) 645-6516 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive a full refund.
