Discovery Kids Lamps Recalled Over Burn, Fire Hazard

A large recall of 360,000 <"">Discovery Kidsâ„¢ Animated Marine and Safari Lamps has been announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The recalled Discovery Kidsâ„¢ Animated Marine and Safari Lamps were imported by Innovage LLC, of Foothill Ranch, California and manufactured in China, a country long associated with products that have been found to be dangerous and linked to an increasing and significant string of recalls.

A defect in the lamp’s printed circuit board can cause an electrical short, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. To date, Innovage has received nine reports of incidents, including seven reports of lamps catching fire, one involving smoke inhalation injury to a child, and three involving minor property damage.

This recall involves the Discovery Kids™ Animated Marine Lamp with model number 1627121 or 1628626 and the Animated Safari Lamp with model number 1627124 or 1628626. All models have batch numbers beginning with “2.” The decorative lamps are silver in color and feature rotating films with marine or safari scenes. “Discovery Kids” is printed on the front, top left corner. The batch number is an 11-digit number located on the bottom of each unit. The model number can be found on the bottom of the packaging.

The 360,000 recalled Discovery Kidsâ„¢ Animated Marine and Safari Lamps were sold at mass merchandisers, department, drug, and hardware stores nationwide; online; and through direct sales from July 2009 through January 2010 for about $10.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the lamps, and contact Innovage for information on returning the product for a full refund. Innovage can be reached toll-free at (888) 232-1535 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday; or visit the firm’s Web site at; or email Innovage at
