Note: This post was updated April 7 with additional information.
We are aware that some of these nightlights may get hot or smoke when plugged in. As a result of the potential risk of fire or shock from these nightlights, we are taking immediate steps to notify people who received them to unplug and not use the nightlights.
We are only aware of issues with nightlights that were distributed since June 2016 that are similar in design to the one pictured. We are not aware of any concerns with nightlights distributed prior to that time.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has also been notified about this matter.
If you or your child received a nightlight since June 2016, unplug and stop using the nightlight immediately. Customers who received these nightlights will soon be receiving instructions as to what to do with them. Under no circumstances should you use them or provide them to others.
Your safety is important to us.
