The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Innovage on Tuesday announced a voluntary recall of 300,000 Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps.
It said internal wires near the circuit board can cause short-circuits and sparking.
The company has received 11 such reports, which include three lamps catching fire. No injuries have been reported.
The lamps were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Bonton, JCPenney, Kohls, Office Max and Toys "R" Us stores nationwide, as well as the online retailers Amazon, Ideeli, JCPenney, Kohls, Macy's and Overstock.
Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the lamps and contact Innovage for instructions on how to obtain a full refund.
