A recall of nearly 500 “100 Musical Lights” sets by Pepe Ganga Corp. has been announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). CPSC warns consumers that light string can overheat and catch fire, posing both a fire and shock hazard to consumers.
The 100-bulb musical Christmas multi-colored lights twinkle as eight Christmas carols play electronically. The model number, which is 31411, is located on the back of the package along the bottom right side of the UPC label. Printed along the front of the white cardboard packaging are the words “100 Musical Lights.” A label affixed to the light string will carry the model number, voltage and the words “Made in China.”
This recall has had no incidents or injuries reported yet. The recalled lights were manufactured in China.
Sold for roughly $8, the recalled lights were sold at Pepe Ganga and Compra De To stores in Puerto Rico from December 2011 to October 2012.
