AmerTac LED Night Lights Recalled

March 1, 2012
American Tack & Hardware Co. Inc. (AmerTac)
The Danger:
An electrical short circuit in the night light can cause it to overheat and smolder or melt, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. AmerTac has received 25 reports of the night lights smoking, burning, melting and charring. No injuries have been reported.
About 227,000 units of three AmerTac night light models are being recalled. Each has a model name and two model numbers. The model name and a secondary model number appear only on the packaging. The basic model number appears on the back of the night light. The night lights are rectangular, about 2-3/16 inches high, 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/4 inches deep. The front housings for each are either white- or nickel-colored plastic with four horizontal vents and a round light sensor above the top vent. The backs of the night lights are gray plastic with the AmerTac logo, the basic model number, "SY" identification code and "ETL" molded into them. Only models bearing "SY" on the back are being recalled. The following night lights are being recalled:
