Hey! That's a LOT of flashlights!

Overheating Target Halloween flashlights uncovered by WalletPop are recalled by the CPSC
(Hope you saved your receipts!)

Oct 28th 2009 - Recalls, Consumer Ally

More than 600,000 Halloween flashlights sold at Target stores nationwide in August and September are being recalled following a story on WalletPop.com about them overheating and burning -- just days before kids head out for trick-or-treating.

The recall being announced today by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission includes both the flashlights -- a three-pack of mini flashlights -- as well as a second set of flashlights with stencils that project six different Hallloween images. Chicago TV station WBBM revealed the problems with those flashlights.
